Making Meaning of Losses

When we experience losses in life there are a few typical responses.  Some may include crying, shock, sadness, feelings of depression, and even denial.  We sometimes reflect upon the positive memories or maybe the negatives if they were more pertinent in our relationship.  Most losses in life are understood by our communities and we can feel supported.  We plan funerals, family and friends fly in to help us memorialize, and society at large pretty much understands.  We’re even allowed time off work to do these things and people understand what we’re going through and try to do what they can to help.
