Politics and addressing grief
Every year in some home around some holiday in the world, a great loss is felt. It is not known why bereavement happens so often around the holidays, but it does. Most people realize they have to pick up and keep on going to get through the day, and face the pain at night until life is bearable once again. Others require the help of a therapist to get through loss. It doesn’t mean one is weaker than the other, it just means that one person deals with grief in a different way. During the holidays around special days, or the type of trauma that causes that loss can all lengthen or determine the type of grief process a person goes through.
