Other Losses

There are over 40 forms of loss that can create the feelings of grief.

According to The Grief Recovery Institute, grief is defined as the conflicting feelings caused by the end or change in a familiar pattern of behaviour. With that definition in mind, we have the potential to grieve any major change, transition, or loss in our lives.

You may have been affected by one or more of the following losses, either recently or long ago,

  • Death
  • Divorce
  • Romantic break-up
  • Pet loss
  • Financial change
  • Job loss
  • Moving
  • Graduation

  • Retirement
  • Pregnancy
  • Having a baby
  • Getting married
  • Psychological diagnosis
    (ie. depression; anxiety)
  • Loss of trust

  • Loss of safety or control
  • Loss of pregnancy (ie. miscarriage; termination)
  • Infertility
  • Loss of faith
  • Loss of health, illness, or injury
  • Loss of freedom
  • Loss of childhood

Regardless of the loss(es) you are grieving, your feelings are completely normal and natural.

You may be experiencing some or all of the following common symptoms of grief:

  • Changes in sleeping and/or eating
  • Changes in routine
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Waves of emotion

  • Physical and/or emotional exhaustion
  • Reduced energy or motivation
