Grief is a universal response to the pain of loss. Each person has their unique response to grief, and that response frequently comes into tension with cultural expectations of how long, intensely, or publicly our grief “should” appear in our lives.

Grief is considered an essential part of coming to grips with the reality of loss and adjusting to the new conditions of life.
