Coping with Grief or Loss

Grief is a natural response to a loss, sometimes it can be overwhelming, but if we don't move through it, we can become emotionally stuck. 

It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but any loss can cause grief, including divorce or the end of any relationship, loss of good health, loss of a job, miscarriage, loss of financial stability, loss of a pet, loss of a dream, loss of family home, and so many more reasons. 

When we have a loss it is important to let our feelings out, if we bury them, they later may come out as continual  depression and sadness. It is important to honestly recognize and feel the feelings of grief and loss.
