Grief Out Loud

When we grieve, we miss the person and who they were in our lives. We miss who we were with them. Often we miss who we were in general before the death. As we think towards the future, we grieve for the events and occasions that we won’t share with the person. Over time, people in grief may start to see themselves differently. What they value, prioritize, and want in life can change radically.
