We grieve through the death, loss and change. Grief is a difficult and painful process, but grieving is important.
What is Grief
According to MayoClinic.com, grief is an overwhelming feeling of sadness, which leaves you numb, detached from life and unable to participate in regular activities.
The Function of Grieving
Grieving is designed to help you work through feelings of separation from what was lost and begin to rebuild your life without that person or thing, according to the book Human Emotions.
Why Grief is Important
The grief process allows you to feel and then move past the loss and negative emotions that you've experienced. If you don't do this, you repress sad feelings rather than allow them to be worked out.
How to Grieve
Grief is a highly personal process. You may wish to grieve alone, but it is good to have a circle of trusted friends or family for support. Emotions of grief include sadness, relief, anger, frustration and denial.
When to Stop Grieving
Grief can take a long time to work through---be patient with yourself. There is no set amount of time for grieving.
