While often used interchangeably, the terms do have different meanings. Bereavement is the state of loss. Grief is the emotional component of loss. Losing someone you love can be painful, often leaving us to experience difficult and surprising emotions. Although there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are ways to cope with pain.
