Coping With A Loss
Grieving Is Work
Grieving is the process that takes a person
from loss to living again. Many people think
of grief as pain and sadness, but
experiencing these feelings is just one of the
tasks of grieving.
These tasks often
Each person's grief is different, and the
grieving for each person who dies is unique.
There is no "correct" way to grieve, no
"right" time to be "over it, "no proper"
intensity of feelings or expression of those
feelings. But in some way, we almost always
get to all of these tasks of grieving while
coping with loss and recovering.
- accepting that the loss is real and
- experiencing painful feelings;
- adjusting to a life without the person
and other associated losses;
- forming new relationships and a
renewed sense of meaning in life.
