I believe that we souls learn something significant from all of our experiences, no matter how grand or small. Each experience changes us. When someone in your life transitions to a spiritual form, they never go without leaving gifts behind.
Grief is part of the human existence. If we lose something we value, we will always in some way grieve it. If we did not grieve it, of what value would it be?
Grief Counselors can help people cope and adapt through grief, but should never deny the griever the right to grieve, even if many, many years later.
Yes, the grief stings less as time goes by and the adaption to life begins, but the past chapters of our life help make us who we are. The past grief helped mold us and if still grieve over a loss, it only shows we are human and we lost something or someone very wonderful.
As long as is your grief is not complicated or pathological, then embrace it, it is what makes you, you.
