Chapter 10. What Is Grief? > Different Tears for Different Folks

Different Tears for Different Folks

It’s true! Look around and you will notice that people grieve differently. There is absolutely no one “right way” to grieve a loss. You have doubtless observed that some people cry pretty openly at a time of sorrow; others appear free of emotion. In the workplace, some employees will want to “talk about it”; others will keep their feelings to themselves. Some tears are on the outside, and some tears are on the inside.

A person may go in and out of grief reaction, experiencing waves of sadness, anger and fear. Some individuals will need many weeks or months to work through grief and reach a place of healing and resolution. Others seem to stay in grief forever. Still others who have experienced loss show no grief reactions at all, and deny any internal grief feelings.
