Grief is normal and healthy, and grieving people should honor these feelings of loss. They need loved ones to listen to them when they want to talk about their loss and to hold them when they feel overcome by emotions. Most importantly, the bereaved need patience from others. Although grief has stages, it does not have a specific timeline. Learn more about grief, including the different types of grief and how grief counselors can help, with this guide. Brought to you by Learn Psychology.
