Grieving a loss often feels unbearable, and yet there comes a time when we need to return to our routines and work.
Grieving is a natural human experience, but it is extremely personal and can be complicated by not feeling safe to grieve in a public + professional environment.
For something that feels so uncomfortable, grief will affect all of us at one point of our lives, however grief support + awareness is often overlooked in the workplace.
Co-workers are often at a loss as how to react around grief, but also how to support their peers.
