Loss is a universal human experience. Whether it is a loss of a dear one, a relationship, a home, or health — grief is the response. Many avoid their grief, believing there isn’t a place or time to support it. When grief gets pushed underground, it saps our energy. The irony is that the very feeling we fear can be the doorway to healing, transformation, and being fully alive.
