Default regarding a loss

so last year my cousin was murdered by her boyfriend, any UK residents may have caught it on the news not so long ago, "Amy-Leigh Barnes". My cousin and I were pretty close and I trusted her a lot. When she died I was distraught but afterwards I felt nothing whilst the rest of the family were in shock and mourning. Is there any reason why I could not grieve? I sat through her funeral emotionless whilst the same question recurred through my thoughts. "why do I feel nothing?" I know I am not in shock, and I do not harbour any hatred towards her killer, though I cannot understand why. My feelings are generally ones of loneliness and sadness and have been before all of this. Is it normal to feel the way I do?

There are no rules when it comes to grieving, everybody reacts in different ways and takes different amounts of time to grieve. Maybe the shock will hit you later, maybe it won't but what you're experiencing is perfectly normal.

Sorry for your loss. We all grieve differently.
