Grief is a very complex process — it cannot be easily defined and it is not an experience from which one can quickly recover. This is why it makes no sense to try and push bereaved individuals to rush their grieving process.
- It is not up to you to heal the grief.
- Forget what you think you know about grief.
- It’s never too late to write a condolence note.
- Anniversary notes are deeply appreciated.
- The principles apply to pet loss, too.
