Everyone experiences grief differently. There is no set time for how long grief endures and there is no “right or wrong” way to grieve. Regardless of a person’s way of coping with loss, grief is almost always associated with a lot of emotional pain. It is important to understand that grieving and experiencing sadness is not a form of weakness – it is merely a sign that you are experiencing the impact of losing a person whom you loved. In fact, as we read from Scripture, we know that Jesus wept over the death of his friend, Lazarus (John 11).
