What qualifies as emotional loss?

Any type of loss is welcome.  Although obvious causes such as death and divorce are common causes, grief can come from many sources.  Recent retirees have attended as well as those who are empty-nesters.  Being forced to move can case grief as can financial stress and even unmet expectations.  If you fit into one of these criteria, you are welcome.
