Loss is an inevitable part of life, and grief is a natural part of the healing process. The reasons for grief are many, such as the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. Dealing with a significant loss can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s life. Feelings of loss are very personal, and only you know what is significant to you. People commonly associate certain losses with strong feelings of grief. Subtle or less obvious losses can also cause strong feelings of grief, even though those around you may not know the extent of your feelings.
