After losing someone to death it can often lead to this sort of thing. No matter what the relationship. I think it is like a spectrum, you could go more towards one end or more towards the other. Im not sure how to explain it but its like you avoid feeling to prevent that deep loss or confusion again. Or just death itself can cause an emotional detachment.
i think we also go through phases, I have been in the same place as you and I think that I am getting back to feeling things much more intensely.
And also I think its a defense mechanism, the less you feel, the less you can be hurt. and the anger IMO, Im referring to my experience might have to do with frustration with not being completely happy with what is going on in life and maybe the hurt is a result of not understanding what is going on inside yourself. I dont think it is coldness, but more protecting yourself.
And not having a complete closure/or acceptance of death (not saying this pertains to you) can leave you feeling somewhat emotionally different.
hope that helped a bit.
