Grief is a normal emotion felt by people when they have lost someone or something close to them. This could be the death of a loved one or animal or the loss of something special. People can experience grief for a number of different reasons, and there is no right or wrong way to process the feelings.
The length of grieving period also differs between people and there are no set time frames for the process. Often people who are grieving experience feelings of isolation and loneliness as well as extreme sadness. Speaking to family, friends and where required, a psychologist, can help people to process their feelings.
If the grief doesn’t go away and your everyday life is being impacted, it might be time to seek help. Psychologists can assist with identifying the thought patterns around the grief and help people move past their loss.
