Someone once said, “Grief is reaching out for someone who’s always been there, only to find when you need them the most, one last time, they’re gone.” We think there is a lot of truth in those words.
The death of a loved one is life’s most painful event. People’s reactions to death remain one of society’s least understood and most “off-limits” topics for discussion. Oftentimes, grievers feel totally alone in dealing with their pain, loneliness, and isolation.
Grief is a natural emotion that follows death of someone dear to you; and to one degree or another, it hurts. It is like an open wound which must heal.
At times, it can seem as if this healing will never happen. But, sometimes the healing process can take much less time than we have been led to believe. Grieving is purely an individual experience.
