If you have ever lost someone, you might be surprised by the way your child/spouse/parent/friend acts after the death. We might think, How can you be insensitive? Or, Why can’t you just get over it and move on?

You have likely heard that everyone grieves differently. One person might not be able to leave the house for a long time, while another buries himself in work. A recent study explores the different types of grief responses based on attachment style, the kinds of relationships we have with others (beginning from infancy).

Read more about this here. It will likely provide some insight on why you and others close to you grieve in a particular way.

(Please note: the study was based on couples who specifically lost a child.)
