Module 4 - Moving through grief
Chapter 2: Stuck in grief
Actions that keep you stuck
Sometimes what we do keeps us stuck. For example, we may hold on to all of the person's belongings. A job may be lost because of frequent visits to the cemetery during work hours.
While these behaviours can be comforting in the short-term, we risk becoming stuck when we delay the task of letting go.
