Grieving is very natural following the death of a loved one. Following
his or her
funeral in Detroit, you may find that grief stays with you for weeks, even months—and
that's okay, because there are as many types and lengths of grieving
as there are people in this world. However, many people when they are
grieving experience five recognizable stages of grief.
Following the death of a loved one, you may experience intense feelings
of denial and isolation. For many people, the funeral ceremony helps make
the loved one's death more real. You may even feel angry with yourself,
others, or the deceased. Some people experience a desire to bargain with
themselves, saying that if they had only sought medical help sooner, their
loved one would still be here. Depression is typically the fourth stage
of grief, which can last for weeks, months, or years after the funeral.
Lots of people experience the last stage of grief, which is acceptance.
While not everyone reaches this stage of mourning, it is considered a
more peaceful and comfortable stage in which the person reflects on the
good times without feeling an overwhelming sense of loss.
