I wonder how a series of grieving experiences accumulates in a person over a lifetime ? I think about how I lost a sibling when I was six, and between then and now in my 40's, I have grieved over the deaths of various others - friends, grandparents etc. Are aspects of grieving partly learned ? Does each consecutive grieving experience change or inform the nature of the grieving experiences that follow ? Do we develop grieving habits? Can we become better, more mindful grievers ?
