You're not the only one, OP. It happens a lot. I'm sorry for your loss.
#26 It's a way to show empathy. They're not saying "hey, that sucks but mine is worse." - they're saying "Happened to me, too, so I completely get and understand what you're going through. My deepest condolences." And I don't understand how the original comment is getting down voted while yours is getting thumbs up-ed. and to OP: My don't expect condolences on your loss. Any loss is tough but I can only imagine it's much harder and much worse when you haven't them in years. I hope you are able to move on from your pain and loss and think happy thoughts and remember good memories when you think of him.
I don't find it insulting at all but it really depends. If the intentions are good-natured and the person is genuinely trying to make the griever feel better, I don't see why you'd call that rude or uncalled for, unless you're so sad and angry that you won't listen to anyone, though it still doesn't make it rude in any way. If the person is just trying for the griever to get over it or pass it off as if it's not a big deal, then yeah, that is a rude and insensitive shithead. That's not the vibe I got from #4's comment, though.
