Grief is a level of emotional pain we all experience and have to
resolve in our own special way. Since we are all unique there are
no set standards or criteria we have to measure up to. There are
many people in this world who say you should go through stages of
grief, act certain ways or exhibit your emotions in a particular
fashion. There are many books, articles, internet sites, churches
and friends who are ready to help you during this time in your
life.. Embrace only those you feel comfortable with and don't feel
you have to do something your not comfortable with. Remember, your
healing process toward closure will begin when you allow it and not
before We pray you find the right grief source for you to begin
your new journey. Listed below are some references that may help
you start as you sort through the changes in your life.
