Grief is an individual natural response to loss.  More significant loss, the more intense the grief.  Here is a list that can cause grief:

Divorce

Loss of health

Losing a job

Loss of financial stability

A miscarriage

Retirement

Death of a pet

Loss of a friendship

Selling family home

Even subtle grief can lead to grief.  Everyone grieves differently.  And there is no timetable for grief.

Do not ignore your grief

Feel sad and cry

There are five stages of grief that I like to recognize:

Denial

Anger

Bargaining

Depression

Acceptance
