I think about him everyday...

I feel like the longer it's been the harder it is. I still can't believe it. It seems like a big practical joke.

I think about what he is missing, and what he would do today.

This week I've been thinking how I wish he got to watch Finding Dory. Such a good film. I know he would have loved it.

I think the hardest part for me is being alone in my grief, as most of my friends and family were not big fans.. I loved Prince since I was a young girl but got busy with life and was not able to follow his career as closely as I wanted. Being here has allowed me to grieve with others who are also hurting. Thank you!

All of the above. The pain is not white hot any longer, but the heaviness in my heart lingers. I don't think there will ever be a time when hearing his name won't cause me to hold my breath as another wave of grief crashes over me. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that he is gone. How? Why? Someone so full of life and love and creativity and energy can't leave just like that. No one was ready for this. He should still be here.

I feel the same and I can't stop watching in the evenings all the newly released material he wouldn't allow us to post on YouTube it's bittersweet. It helps to see so many people discovering him for the first time and I'm happy sad but glad his legacy will live on with a new generation. He's finally getting the recognition he so rightly deserves. He Left his footsteps in my youth, gone but definitly not forgotten. He's finally home, happy and content.

It feels exactly like loosing a dear familymember or a close friend. One big difference is that in the process of mourning I am much more confrnted with the deseased as 'normal'. Relatives and friends don't have that muc music in my collectien, as many videos on Youtube or that much websited dedicated. Of course, it's me looking at those vids and sites. But that makes the overall process taking longer i guess.

I'm doing better. 3 days and no tears, but admittingly had to force myself yesterday not to cry. Had a strange 'Prince' encounter that made my heart sink. I really can't explain it, but I felt his presence for a moment. Freaked me out.

Thanks for asking....

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince

Still very, very sad. I wake up and 1st thought is Prince. I read anything I can find. Watch videos. Read new posts here. Go to sleep thinking of Prince.

I've only felt like this a few times: loved Elvis as a kid. Watched his (bad) movies when I was 7. He died when I was a hormonal teen and I was devastated.
& when John Lennon was shot. Loved the Beatles & it was so shocking.

But Prince....no, nope. Not right. He shouldn't be gone.

It's been a tough year with David Bowie & Alan Rickman. Prince just broke me. I don't understand how I feel. But I read so many posts that so many here feel the same way. & it helps.

I watched an interview of Prince last night in 2000. He's SO beautiful. My fav look, that sexy long hair. & funny! then I think "Prince is still here, somewhere." & then I realized that no, he's not. & how can that be?? So heart-broken at the loss of this beautiful man. :bluv cry broken

Same here! I have been a fan since I was young as well, and growing up and having a family I wasn't able to follow as closely as I used to. I have lurked the org for a while but officially joined when he passed. It's like being with family after you've lost somebody.

I have some friends that are fans but not as much as I have been, so it's hard for them to understand how I feel with the loss. One of my husband's friend's girlfriend said to me "get over it, it's not like you ever met the guy". But you don't have to physically meet somebody to admire and adore them. Listening to his music was enough for me to connect with him, and even though I never did meet him his words helped me understand him. There are days when I listen to his music and I cry, and there are days when I listen to his music and I smile. As time goes on there are more smiles than tears, but his words and talent are enough to bring a wave of emotions and I think this is going to happen for years to come.

This year has been probably the worst I have ever had. I've had a miscarriage, an emergency surgery, split with my partner for good, lost my job, got evicted...AND PRINCE DIED ☹️. I'm getting through it by listening to his music everywhere I go but it's hard if I sit and think about it too long.

Sorry I just told all my business. Rough year cry

Like some of you guys said, thinking about my own mortality. Like Prince, trying to find my way back home myself. Still feeling like something very important is missing around here though... Any given day, seeing a picture, watching a video or reading something about him, could either make me laugh or cry.

Agree very much with this, and also comments about tributes. Every time I see someone do one of his songs especially copping his moves and mannerisms, it is too much because it so hammers home that not only is he gone but that no one left on earth comes close to his one of a kind talent. Really chokes me up every time. God, he was special and I love and miss him.

It's difficult when the one you turned to when things in your own life go a bit haywire or unstable or just felt a tiny bit off kilter, the one who was there to make you feel everything was just fine, has crumbled away. The one you used to escape feeling sad, becomes the object of your sadness. AND stuff is still going just as haywire and off kilter as it's always been. You listen to your favorite, "I feel sorry for myself and wallow in it for just a few moments until I feel better and ready to go out and face whatever" songs, now are tinged with a journey ended. There's little escape, there's some of course, but not like it use to be. I find that highly annoying at times.

It's been a rough year. I was already upset about Bowie. I think about Prince a lot, and think about life & death a lot more. But at the same time just trying to focus on work and live my life. In a way I've become a bit more numb. Recently, I made a new friend who's also a big fan so it's cool we can geek out over his work. That said, on Friday I wad dj'ing and I looked down and saw the Prince album in my crate. I just felt really sad and started welling up. Hopefully, nobody noticed.

Thanks everybody.

I agree that it's a sucky feeling when your place of solace is also your place of sadness. But when I play his music it makes me feel good as long as I don't dwell on reality. Idk if its healthy but if I think about him being gone, it's no longer my happy place.
I also agree with whoever said the Sheila tribute made things worse. I loved it, but it did for me as well. I was just waiting on him to come out and surprise us.

Ouch! That's Murphy's Law coming down on you with an attitude. sad I'm just wishing you strength (and a sense of humour) to go through all this and as Prince said, there's always a rainbow at the end of every rain. rainbo
I hope things will go better from now on.

I have a good week, then I have a low week. In between, I rejoice his music and dance like there's no tomorrow. Overall, I'm still sad and I feel that music and the world is not quite the same, without him.

I felt like a part of me has definitely gone with his passing.His music has accompanied me for so many years...I always visited the org but never joined, and since his passing I needed to grief with others and read and talk about him.


My mother was so intrigued by my reaction to his passing that decided to search him on you tube and listen to his music and watch some videos. She was amazed and told me the other day: his performances on stage were awesome! Now I understand you... One more purple fan smile

I have been listening to him non stop and trying not to think that he´s no longer in this planet with us.

Yes, the Org has really helped me. A great shoulder to cry on with others that understands. I'm really thankful for this site right now. Thank you Prince.Org!

Getting better.Still tear up just thinking about he really is gone.I have loved that man so. He and his music were a part of my life for over 30 years. He has been with me since I was 13! So the lost for me is profound.As I grew up over the years I followed and listen to his music.Caught the interviews, awards shows, picked up the magazines etc. I was right there for it all.

I long ago lost the scrapbook I had as a teenager in a move and as an adult the posters on my bedroom wall are not there,but the feeling I had as a teenage fan never waned.I have simply always ADORED him. I was lucky my family( especially my mom) are Prince fans and know how I felt when he passed.She remembers having to buy all those albums back in the day! lol

Now Iam just living life and going about my business.Thanks to the internet Im able to enjoy connecting with other fans and discovering all the little hidden gems that surface daily. I still cry everyday and I can't stop thinking about him at night when all is quiet....

Iam so heartbroken sad But I thank yall for letting me join and hang out with you all.....
