What do you think is the purpose of grief? Do individuals grieve differently and some not at all?
Grief is the process by which we adjust to living without someone in our lives. It helps us adjust to the loss, pick up the pieces of our lives; and, learn to live without that special someone.
Grief is a necessary emotion - without it we would never get to the point where we can begin coping with our loss. Without grief, we would never be able to heal.
The expression of grief is as individual as the person grieving. Everyone grieves in their own way. Some can be seen to be actively grieving; while, others prefer to grieve only in the safety of their own homes or other places where they can grieve in solitude without being seen by others.
I've suffered from grief before. To me it's a medical condition, which someone can suffer from after something terribly bad happens or is witnessed by someone, where the brain needs time to put strong feelings in order, to organise the painful feelings, allowing someone to move forward. It can cause 'shock', shaking, dissyness, nightmares, headaches, tears, depressed feelings, lack of energy, lack of clarity, lack of sleep. If the symptoms persist in the months after the incident it's important to seek medical advice, as if you consider to suffer without medical help it can lead to ongoing depression. The way it felt for me was like temporary mental disfunction.
