Grieve Less: The case for moving on quickly
Conventional wisdom says that, after a significant loss, whether a job or loved one through breakup or death, we must grieve fully before moving forward. So the argument goes, unless we’ve fully processed the loss, the painful feelings are more likely to linger.
But my clients and I have generally found that the longer the grieving, the more top-of-mind the loss remains. I explain why and offer examples for moving forward in my PsychologyToday.com article today.
