Once again a reminder that not everyone goes through these five stages of grief. They are responses that many people have, but there is no typical response to loss, just as there is no typical loss. Our grief is as individual as our lives.
Remember that each death or major loss you experience will be different than the others. The stages of grief may be partially absent or may last longer or be shorter depending on the relationship held with the deceased. There is no "schedule" for grieving your loss. The wonderful thing about being a part of the human experience is that we are all different in the way we perceive the world, each other, and ourselves!
