Grief is a reaction when someone or something loses something personal. This is usually when someone loses something living that has died, to which a bond or affection was formed. Reactions to grief can be different depending on the person. They can cry, be mad or even not react because they are in shock.[1]

Some people say that grief comes in five parts:[2]

  1. denial
  2. anger
  3. guilt
  4. depression
  5. acceptance
