It hurts when someone dies. Allowing time to go through the natural process of grief will eventually help to ease the pain. People experience grief in many different ways. It can be emotional, physical, behavioral, cognitive and spiritual. At times, grief may feel overwhelming. It is important to remember that grief is not a problem to be solved, but rather, a process to be lived. If you or someone you know is grieving, these are some of the natural grief responses that may be experienced:
Grief can be experienced emotionally
Grief can be experienced physically or behaviorally
Grief can be experienced cognitively
Grief can be experienced spiritually
While there is no time line for the heart when it comes to natural grief responses and ebb and flow, it will not always be as raw, intense and constant. Giving voice to the feelings will eventually allow for hope and healing.
