Grief is a natural, normal response to a loss. It is how we think and feel inside when someone we love dies. When someone we care about dies, our journey begins and grief is the path we must travel. Everyone’s grief experience is uniquely their own. There is no road map that tells us how to grieve.
According to William Worden, there are four experiences that we go through after the death of someone we care about.
Mourning is when we let our thoughts and feelings go outside so others can know what we are experiencing. It is our public expression of what we feel and it is essential in our healing process.
