Grief is the normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind.
The range of emotions associated with grief are as varied as there are people and personalities
As every relationship is unique, so are the feelings and thoughts each person will have about their relationship that has been altered by death, divorce, moving, loss of health, loss of faith in God, loss of childhood innocence, any of about 40 other possible losses.
While grief is normal and natural, most of the information passed from generation to generation is not normal, natural, or helpful
Grief is emotional response to loss, however, most of the information we have learned about dealing with grief is intellectual. While some the intellectual information, may possibly be correct; it is the heart that is broken and not the head. Trying to heal the heart with intellect alone, is like trying to paint a room with a hammer, screwdriver, and a tape measure. It is the wrong tools, it doesn't get the job done, and it makes a mess
Discovering and completing all of the undelivered communications that accrue in relationships. We are told to "Let It Go" and "Move On" after all kinds of losses, however, we are seldom told how to do that.
Completion of the pain caused by the loss is what will allow us to recover. We must take a series of small and correct actions to will allow us to complete the pain caused by the loss.
