What is Grief?
Grief is the natural emotional response to the loss of a loved one or a significant life change, encompassing a range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors as individuals navigate their way through the process of mourning.
Grief is a complex and deeply personal emotional response to loss, whether it be the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or a significant life change. It often involves a range of feelings, including sadness, anger, guilt, and profound sorrow. People experiencing grief may also have physical symptoms like fatigue, loss of appetite, or sleep disturbances. The grieving process is not linear, and individuals may cycle through various stages, such as denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, in no specific order. Support from friends, family, or therapy can be valuable in helping individuals cope with their grief and adapt to life without the presence of what has been lost.
