Loss and grief

grief; loss; ;

Grief is the term used to describe the feelings we have after a loss. It is natural to feel overwhelmed with emotions like pain, anger and sadness. Sometimes you can even feel numb.

Loss can come into our lives in lots of ways, and it affects each of us differently. Even when something happens that appears positive, such as leaving school and starting work, we can experience some feelings of grief for what we've left behind.

When we have a loss in our life, we may go through reactions of grief. These reactions and feelings are different for everyone. You always feel loss in your own unique way.
