The Definition of Grief

(9:17)

Defining grief as the natural response to any loss, Doug Manning explains the necessity of walking the long journey of grief and giving yourself permission to have a broken heart before you can turn the corner in how you cope and begin to live again.

“It's easier to miss her at a cemetery, where she's never been anything but dead, than to miss her at all the places where she was alive.”
John Scalzi, Old Man's War
“I feel a flash of grief so intense it almost makes me cry out: not for what I lost, but for the chances I missed.”
Lauren Oliver
"Grief shared is grief diminished."
Rabbi Grollman
