“Grief is like peeling an onion, it comes off one layer at a time and you cry a lot.”

We all handle our grief in our own way and in our own time. You might experience all kinds of overwhelming emotions and you might feel that the sadness will never end.
This is a normal reaction to loss. Grief is a natural response to loss. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief is likely to be.
