When a person experiences the loss of someone they love, either through divorce or death, they are forced to deal with grief. When a loss occurs, most of us are unprepared for how to handle it, especially if we have never had to deal with it before. Even if we have, it is still traumatic each time. There is a lot to learn about grief, especially the necessity of grieving a loss. Some people don’t allow themselves to grieve – they hold it in, only to have it negatively affect them for the rest of their lives. Some people tend to wallow in their grief for too long, unable to adjust. Although the grieving process is different for each individual, it is imperative that grief be worked through so that you can come out on the other side of it and get on with your life. Life does go on, so we may as well live it to the fullest when all is said and done.
