Grief and Loss

georgia nat'l cemetary

Grief is a normal process that occurs when there is a loss. Grieving individuals often feel sadness, isolation, numbness, anger, loneliness, or guilt. Death, divorce, and loss of a career or job are the most common causes of grief. The grieving process is as varied as the individuals; however, it is not uncommon for the process to take two-five years, especially following a major loss. Developing support networks can strenghten individuals, helping them along the healing process.
