A Guide to Grief: Stages of Grief, Coping Tips, Sympathy Flowers, and More

The word "grief" describes the strong emotions felt when someone experiences a loss. Typically, people associate grief with a loved one's death. However, there are different types of grief. Sometimes, when a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal disease, their loved ones experience anticipatory grief. People also grieve job losses, the end of relationships, or non-fatal health issues. Along with grieving for people, animal lovers also grieve the death of their pets. Grieving is a normal reaction to any sort of loss. All people grieve at some point in their lives, but at the same, everyone grieves differently. Some people might feel numb; others struggle to carry on with their daily routine; and still others actually handle the immediate aftermath of the loss well, only to experience heavy grief later. Most people, though, find that they learn to live with the loss and the passage of time lessens the pain.
