Grief is an inevitable part of the human experience, customarily connected to losing a loved one or something significant in our lives. A deeply personal journey that affects individuals differently, even though it’s a universal human experience. The reality of grief is that it is a far more intricate, non-linear and complicated process that does not adhere to the prevalent notion of a linear sequence of stages.
