Grief is the human way to deal with a loss. It's an emotional response to something we love being taken away. The most often associated cause of grief is the death of a loved one, but there are several other causes of grief, such as relationships ending, injury/illness, loss of financial stability, moving away, and so on. Different situations will trigger a diverse response for each person involved. For some, the death of a pet is devastating for others it isn't. What you grieve and how you grieve over are extremely personal. There is no right way to grieve since how you grieve will depend on your personality, experience, faith, and the importance of the loss. The most important thing to remember when grieving is to not be ashamed to share
