Grief is traumatic

Grief is traumatic. It’s the human response to a great loss or trauma. While we typically think of grief as the response to death, which it is, you can grieve for any loss. People often go through a period of grief when diagnosed with a terminal illness, after a breakup, a relocation, an amputation, a job loss, or a closing chapter of life. There are many types of grief and the way you process grief will depend on the type and depth of loss you have experienced. 

If you type grief into an internet search, you will easily find a precise definition. While there is a “Merriam Webster” version, it’s more complicated than that. 

You may experience abbreviated grief where you bounce back more quickly than most; or complicated grief which comes with mental health diagnosis; or anything in between. 

The key to navigating any type of grief is to face it head-on. How you do so will depend on what or who you are grieving, and will have a lot to do with who you are as a person. 

While resilience plays a part, there’s more to it than that. If you want to learn more about grief and loss, then check out our new eBook The Journey of Grief and Loss: Let The Healing Process Begin
