Grief and loss can be painful and result in a myriad of emotions and responses, including denial, anger, sadness, bargaining and acceptance.
These can be fluctuating and nonlinear, meaning they may come and go throughout the grieving process.
This process of grieving is normal and may be resolved with time and support, including a support group.
Sometimes, however, symptoms of anxiety and depression can accompany the grieving process and impact our functioning. And, losses are not specific to deaths, yet we can experience grief from a loss of a relationship, a job, a specific identity, etc. It is important to feel and experience the accompanying emotions as they come.
While we will never forget, we can learn to embrace our memories and feelings; and regain our functioning.
