Over the years, many grievers have shared with us that they have been told they can’t start working on recovering from their loss for at least the first six months.
The idea being that you will start to feel better after a while - because time is a great healer.
At Grief UK we know that time doesn't heal a broken heart brought about by a bereavement. While we may learn to adjust over time to life with the pain of the loss, the unresolved grief will continue to create emotional conflict, impact relationships and potentially cause destructive behaviour.
