Grief Matters! Jill Cody, M.A. Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Certified Funeral Celebrant No one is immune from grief. Since none of us are going to get out of this lifetime alive, everyone must deal with grief at least once; most of us much more often. Every loss has a grief component; each different from every other and each different depending on who experiences it, and in what context. Losing a job or an opportunity, losing a relationship, losing a pet – and many more. We tend to be a grief-denial society. We lurch away from pain and toward pleasure. Escapism and avoidance are in our DNA. Addictive behaviors and attempts at self-medication are connected to this avoidance. Monthly, we will explore many issues related to death, grief, mourning, as well as specific healing strategies. I want to provide information that would be empowering, positive, and helpful to folks who are facing severe loss. This series of articles is focused on answering any questions you may have.
