Grief is a multifaceted response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone or something that has died, to which a bond or affection was formed. Although conventionally focused on the emotional response to loss, it also has physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions.
The emotional response to loss. That is the definition of grief. However, having just lost my mother, I can not even put words to the depth of the pain I feel in my heart every time I think of her, which lately seems to be all of the time. I had no idea just how many areas of my life were somehow connected to her, until now, after she’s gone. I still find myself thinking about calling her, almost daily.
It is said that there are 5 stages of grief, ending with acceptance.
I PRAY that someone can tell me it will get better soon. Time heals all wounds, right?
