We have many creative ways of managing and navigating grief, and how we do so is largely dependent on what is culturally acceptable.
Grief springs forth from numerous sources. It evokes a range of emotions from debilitating sadness, shock, anger, regret, and guilt, to deep gratitude and even joy and happiness. As we reflect on a year of Covid, it can be overwhelming to contemplate the varied packages in which loss has presented itself. It can be difficult to know how to grieve.
We all experience loss eventually. It can be especially difficult when we experience he grief and loss of a loved one. The past year especially has been a year of grief on various levels. Physically staying away from loved ones, losing loved ones, or not being able to attend a funeral because of restrictions has made our grief more complicated. Grief can be overwhelming, and sometimes it becomes unclear how to continue living with that pain. Everyone deals with grief and loss in their ways, and some might block off their emotions.
