BROWARD HEALTH - GOLD COAST HOSPICE

Grief is not a sign of weakness or a lack of faith but rather a normal reaction to loss. Grief is an emotional, spiritual and physical wound that takes time to heal. Grieving takes time because we must mourn each facet of the lost relationship that made it special.

There is no right or wrong way to grieve, nor is there a set time frame in which mourning must be completed. Grief can be resolved by dealing with feelings openly, by going through the pain and finding a new focus for life.
