Grief is a very natural response to loss. It is unique to each individual and will depend on the circumstances of the death, your relationship with the deceased and your own personality and feelings. There is no right, wrong or normal way to grieve and for some people it is helpful to talk about and explore your feelings. Talking openly about your grief may help you find a different perspective on things, or a deeper understanding of yourself and your situation. You may also try out new ways of coping with your feelings and what is happening to you.
