Grief, it may be from the loss of a loved one or a pet, or maybe it is the response to the loss of a job, a limb, a dream or a home. Regardless of the source, grief is something almost every person experiences. While it is normal, it isn’t always easy or smooth, and it doesn’t necessarily follow the same course, person to person.
Grief often comes with waves of sadness, anger, guilt, denial, and fear, but ideally ends in a state of acceptance.
Sometimes people don’t arrive at a place of acceptance, and the grief begins to negatively impact one’s outlook and ability to move ahead, undermining relationships and compromising one’s ability to hold down employment and etc. When this is the case, a person may be suffering from complicated grief or depression.
If you, or someone you know, is struggling to transition through grief to a functional life state, please reach out for help. Though grief is normal, it isn’t normal to suffer in your loss indefinitely. Help is available.
