This ‘diagram of grief’ went viral because it struck a chord with so many people
This analogy of how we deal with grief, posted on the BBC iPlayer, went viral because it struck a chord with so many people.
'You don't get over grief, you just learn to have it as part of your life.'

And here are just a few of the responses it generated.
I’ve always said that you don’t get over losing someone, you learn to live with it and when you access that pain it’s as raw as it was when it happened. This illustrates that so well.

read some old texts from september and it brought me straight back into the grief & sent me into a quick downward spiral but then i remembered “life has expanded, i can handle this.” the video helped

I lost my Dad just over two weeks ago, so it’s still very raw. And although I don’t want the pain forever, I do not want to get over it or forget, so it brings a strange comfort that it’ll never go.
