Everyone's grief is as unique and individual as our fingerprints.  In this episode the discussion centers around the need for us to accept the way others grieve, even though it may be very different from our own. 

Grief responses are often determined by the person's role in the family: spouse, child, sibling, parent, etc. 

It can also be affected by the type of relationship (close, estranged, distant, etc.) between the person who died and the person who's grieving. 

There are many other factors that can influence the way a person grieves, including

  • personality types
  • birth order
  • caregiving roles
  • coping skills
  • lifestyle choices
  • expectations
  • previous grief experiences
