How long will the grieving last?

Sounds a little silly but my cat of 17 years is slowly fading away. It will be like losing a member of the family. I will shed big tears but I also know he’s had a good life and take comfort in that thought. The reason I share this with you is that a lot of people who come see me after they have lost a loved one, and do not know that the normal average grieving time is a year. This is because we go through the holidays and birthdays and other big events thinking about them. I just wanted to remind those who have lost a love one, time will help you and it’s okay to still cry weeks, months, and years as you remember them in your thoughts.

Peace be with you.
