Grief is the reaction a person has to the death of someone important to them, or the loss of something important to them. It involves the whole person, including emotional, cognitive, physical, social, and spiritual reactions.
If you have lost a loved one, it is natural to grieve. Grief is a normal response to death or loss. Grief gives us a chance to reflect on the relationship with our loved one, and gives us time to find new strength to continue. A grieving person's task is not to let go but rather to find a different way to hold on.
