Grief and loss are normal and natural parts of life. We experience them almost every time there is change such as, leaving a job, a spouse/partner, a city or town. Aging can also bring losses with it, as can parenthood, injuries, pain conditions, pet ownership and career changes. It is important to learn your own unique way of grieving so as to move through experiences of loss with greater ease. If we resist the necessary grieving, all those emotions tend to build up and cause us even bigger problems down the track.
