What is Grief?

Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense your grief may be. However, even subtle losses can lead to grief. For example, you might experience grief after moving away from home, graduating from college, changing jobs, selling your family home or retiring from a career you loved.
