If you are living well you will grieve. Healthy life has close relationships in it and nothing is permanent so, at least some of those relationships will come to an end. Grieving is not a sign of problem but it is painful. Sometimes, being the pain avoiding creatures we are we try to avoid the pain of grief and in doing so get stuck in unhealthy avoidant patterns of behavior such as substance abuse, over working or depression. Sometimes we don't want to accept the loss and stay suck in refusing to really accept our loss. Healthy grieving involves appreciating the person we have lost and the relationship we have had and honoring that relationship in our lives moving forward.
