The death of a fellow human is one of the saddest, yet most meaningful moments in your life that can change you as a person and motivate you even more in life. The most popular influencers, actors, singers, and more that have passed away have left an enormous impact of sadness on those who were close to them and even those who were not. But why are people affected by losses when they did not personally know them? Well, for starters, those who have had a loved one pass away experience anger and grief. These people often fall into a never-ending hole in a motionless state for a long period of time because of how difficult it is for them to move on.
This can also occur for those who are not as close to a person who has passed. For example, Kobe Bryant was an influencer who not only gave the Lakers strength but gave other players and non players confidence to continue to persevere in what they love. Kobe Bryant’s recent death was (and still is) hard to cope with for many people in and out the basketball world. Kobe Bryant’s impact on others inspired many to try their hardest in everything that they do. People mourn over the loss of other people they were not close to because of how big of an impact that person had on the world.
