Emotion and reason with a hijacked heart

Grief is an emotional process.  When loss comes, it hits the heart. Hard.

Everyone has a natural balance of emotion and reason.  This balance is different for all of us, influenced greatly by our backgrounds, experiences, and personalities. When grief strikes, emotion surges forward and often hijacks the heart.


Multiple, seemingly contradictory feelings can assault us all at once.  Emotion now occupies more   space, and reason gets squeezed.
