Grief & loss
There are many reasons why one would grieve, which go beyond what we typically feel
describes grief (ie death, loss). Even though death and dying are an example of
grief process, the process does extend to many other areas of life. These
include loss of a relationship, loss of a role in life (eg as a provider), loss
of physical capacity and so on. As such, grieving is an underestimated process
and we often overlook the need to give ourselves space and time to grieve and
recover from the valuable something we have lost.
