The Normal Reactions of Grief

(6:30)

Physical symptoms, religious reactions, depression, and detachment are some of the things  that Doug Manning discusses as being normal reactions of grief.

“I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, however, turns out to be not a state but a process.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
“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
"We find a place for what we lose. Although we know that after such a loss the acute stage of mourning will subside, we also know that we shall remain inconsolable and will never find a substitute. No matter what may fill the gap, even if it be filled completely, it nevertheless remains something else. "
Sigmund Freud
