It is not something British people are very good at. We dont show our emotions so easily as the Turks. We dont generally grieve publically and even privately some of us find it difficult. Some people find it hard to deal with someone elses sadness or grief. They dont know how to react if someone cries. When I was younger, I didn't think men cried - at all!!!! I thought it was only something children or women do!

How grief is dealt with in different cultures is very interesting and I also think it is important to understand, especially when there are cross cultural relationships.

sadness and griefs may be not much likeable for first hear,but adds more and more on personality,and thats certain all cultures have their own specialites,so some of people can find theirself better in the griefs while another one can't live without cheer,so its really worth to trying understand differences of cultures for to be amazed or shocked

It´s quite the addiction for me, it´s confusing though I understand the soul of

it and it´s just beautiful. The most beautiful in the world to me the Turkish

language, people, land, culture....what a jewel.
