Is being heartbroken the same as grieving? - September 15th 2016, 04:16 PM

Is it the same process as grieving? I am asking this because when I get heartbroken I get depressed and then all off a sudden I feel so happy that I no longer care. What do you think?

I would say that losing someone can be because a person died or because they're no longer with us because there was a breakup/fallout. Both are devastating and involve a similar healing process. Both involve feeling all kinds of emotions. No two experiences of loss are the same. It can vary from person to person and even the different losses a person experience.

I agree in that experiences really vary from person to person, however, I think being heartbroken can be similar to grieving. Being heartbroken during a break up, for instance, can mean that you're grieving the loss of a relationship but not necessarily that the person has passed away. Another example could be someone grieving the loss of their childhood if they had a rough upbringing. But, like it has been said, it varies, and it really depends on how you're feeling and what you think it is like.

If clarity's in death, then why won't this die?
Years of tearing down our banners, you and I
Living for the thrill of hitting you where it hurts
Give me back my girlhood, it was mine first

I am not sure if you go through the same exact process as you do with grief but I do think it is similar. While the person has not died they are no longer a part of your life and it feels like a death. You can't text them like you'd like. You can't hold them like you'd life. The person is physically alive but they are not physically present in your life.
