People who are grieving the death of a loved one suffer often wonder whether their grief is normal. Grief is a normal response after the death of a family member or close friend and healing too, is a part of that process.
There is no universal rule when it comes to healing. Different people face grief differently. Some become very emotional while others are unable to control their tears. Therefore, it is difficult to categorize grief as normal or otherwise.
People have different personalities, different emotional quotients and face different situations of death. The combinations of these factors differ and so too the manifestations of grief among individuals.
