What Exactly is Grief?

Grief is an intricate emotional process that is a natural response to loss, encompassing a spectrum of feelings from profound sadness to anger, guilt, or even relief. It's a deeply personal journey that affects individuals in various ways, impacting their emotional well-being, relationships, and overall quality of life. There are many types of grief and the grieving process can often begin long before the loss occurs. This is called anticipatory grief, and it's a reaction to a loss that was expected. Grieving involves navigating through a range of emotions and experiences, often accompanied by physical symptoms like fatigue, changes in appetite, or headaches.
