My partner and I are processing some disappointments in our lives. Not life and death stuff (more about where we live and so on) but significant to us. We also have some friends who are handling major health problems. Which has lead me to think about the process of grieving – and how it applies to more than just someone we are close to dying.

I have done a post about grieving on the Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life blog. It is called Good Grieving: finding a new normal. I take the perspective that grieving is about a loss of what was normal for us and the process of finding a new normal. I hope you like it, Evan.

  1. I fully agree with you that that there are many types of grieving that is just the “normal” course of life even the “smaller” stuff. The biggest factor though is how the person perceives the loss and the meaning that the person places upon it.

    Hi CC, yes I think that’s true. I also think that sometimes we are surprised by the strength of our reaction and we learn that something was more important to us than we realised. Thanks for your comment.

    The process of grieving is unavoidable and the stages of denial, bargaining, and acceptance are well known… takes time to grieve.

  4. Health is very important aspect of life. There is noting we can do without health. I just hope your friends get well soon or could fight from their diseases.

  5. Every one has to taste grieve so i just hope we have a good life here. And ofcourse get well soon prayer for your friends.
