How Long Will I Feel This Way?
There is no ‘normal’ or prescribed amount of time to grieve, and your grieving process depends on multiple aspects, such as your age, beliefs, personality type, and support network. The type of loss you experience is also a significant factor. For instance, dealing with the loss of a job, the ending of a relationship, or losing a loved one are three very distinct types of losses that require different amounts of time to process. The loss of a loved one will take a significantly long time and be more difficult to process and cope with versus the loss of a job. But, it is true what they say: time does heal all. The sadness eases with time, and you’ll be able to experience joy and hope along with grief and be able to return to your regular daily life.
