Losing a friend or a loved one is never easy. It is only natural for an individual to mourn their loss. It is a painful process and you may grieve for a long time. But eventually, you will get better. However, when grief becomes persistent and chronic, and when it gets significantly worse over time, that individual may be suffering from Complicated Bereavement.
