When we think of grief, we most often think of the mourning that comes after someone has died.
But grief is so much wider. We grieve because of loss and life can dish up all kinds of loss.
Those losses can trigger the same emotions and the same physical responses we experience when someone we love has died.
It’s a myth that we only grieve someone who has died.
Because we can very much grieve someONE who is still living. And we can grieve someTHING that has died.
