What is Grief?

Grief is one of the most difficult experiences we will ever have to go through in life.


Here are a few ways in which grief has been described;


  • Grief is the normal and natural response to a loss of any kind.
  • Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a regular pattern of behaviour.
  • Grief is our inward thought and emotions in response to bereavement or loss.
  • Mourning is the outward expression of our grief.


After a person dies we can struggle to come to terms with what has happened. But I think it is very important to remember that grief is not a sign of weakness, our grief is in fact a sign that we cared.


Some people interpret grief as a sickness or a disease or a mental health disorder. But the reality we need to recognize and understand is, grief is not a reflection on our coping mechanisms, our grief is actually a tribute to the fact that we’re saying I miss the person so much that we shed tears.


That’s right grief is the cost of caring and it is very important to recognize grief is not a pathological thing or an illness or a mental health thing. It is how we think and feels on the inside when someone we love dies or when something we love has been lost.


You’re grieving and that is a normal and natural reaction to bereavement or loss of any kind.
