8 curious facts about grief

According to the psychologist Paola Hamui, of the Psychoanalytic Society of Mexico (SPM) after a loss is normal to lose some interest in the outside world, because all the energy is monopolized by pain, until little by little in a normal duel, the subject is detached from that pain, looking balance and recovery from the trauma experienced.

The approximate duration of this process is usually one year and its purpose is that the subject manages to detach progressively from the lost object. If the deep sadness and inability to restore the life and daily routine of the person in mourning is more than the year, then it is a pathological duel, for which professional support is recommended.
