I just don’t agree with it. The late relative/friend isn’t able to read your status’ and it may upset other people who can see it. I find it disrespectful.
You’ve never lost someone then. That was a way that I mourned the loss of my cat, Lucky, after I had to put her down. It was a way of reaching out for comfort after the loss of someone dear to me. It’s not disrespectful, it’s a way to ask for comfort and to share your emotions without bottling them all away.
When a classmate was killed in a car accident, there were a lot of people who posted statuses about him in mourning his death. A lot of people also posted on his wall— and his closest friends STILL do on both his birthday and on the anniversary of his death and it’s been multiple years.
How is it that people can be offended by something like a sad status? Leave the damn person alone, don’t like reading their status? Don’t read it, problem=solved.
