Losing a loved one to death, whether it was expected, sudden, or as the result of something more traumatic, the funeral period is one where everyone is kept busy attending to the one they love, doing all they can for them in a final gesture of love before saying goodbye.
But what happens after the funeral is over? The grief that people suffer as the result of losing a loved one varies from one situation to the other. For some, it will be a natural process of grieving especially if it was an older family member who lived a good long life passed away. For others, it will be a more complex process when it comes to grieving for a loved one after the funeral.
Everyone is Different Where Grieving is Concerned
There really is no proper way to grieve and each person will grieve in a different way. It has been said that time heals all wounds, but that is not necessarily the case. It is recommended that people be patient with themselves, to do things that they want or are able to do and if necessary, to seek the professional help that is available for this purpose.
