Grief and Dealing with Loss

When a loss takes place, you may experience a wide range of emotions. One can grieve the death of a loved one, a broken relationship, or a failed dream. There is no real order or rule to the grieving process. Feelings like sadness, anger, or confusion are normal and common reactions to loss. You may not be prepared for the intensity and duration of your emotions or how swiftly your moods may change. You may even begin to doubt the stability of your mental health. But be assured that these feelings are healthy and appropriate and will help you come to terms with your loss.
