The Definition of Grief?
Grief is individual and unique for every person. A person’s relationship to each aspect of their life is also unique. As such, the feelings and thoughts each person will have about the relationship that has been altered by death, divorce, or other reasons requires customized attention using proven skills and understanding.
Simply defined, grief is the normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind. While we never compare losses, any list would include, death and divorce as obvious painful losses. Our list also includes many others; retirement, moving, pet loss, financial and health issues.
Over 40 Types of Loss Including:
- Divorce of Relationship Ending
- Loss of Health
- Pet loss
- Major Financial Changes
- Moving and Many Others
While Grief is normal and natural, most of the information passed on within our society about dealing with grief is not normal, natural, or helpful. Grief is the emotional response to loss or change, but most of the information we have learned about dealing with loss is only intellectual.
Recovery from loss is accomplished by discovering and completing all of the undelivered communications that accrue in relationships. We are all advised to “Let Go,” and “Move On” after losses of all kinds. Most of us would do that if we knew how.
Completion of the pain caused by loss is what allows us to go and move on. It is almost impossible to move on without first taking the series of actions needed to complete this natural process. A Time to Grieve provides the supportive guidance each individual needs to learn about this process within themselves. Together, we will walk through this process and find a path to recovery.
