The experience of loss in one’s life can come in many different forms such as the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, loss of a home due to catastrophic events or moving, the death of a pet, or the loss of a job. Grieving can also occur when anticipating the loss of a loved one or a significant transition often referred to as anticipatory grief. Other types of grief include complicated grief, traumatic grief, and delayed grief.
Grieving and mourning is a normal experience after a loss. However, grieving can also become chronic and severe and have a negative impact on many areas of your life including selfcare, work, and relationships. When the pain of loss turns into suffering and impacts your daily life then it is time to reach out for professional help.
