—In life, people face many complicated situations
and experience a number of changes either positive or negative.
In both cases, people are asked to address them, to make
decisions and to work with them in a psychological level in
order to accept them and enhance them in their present and
future way of life. The main purpose of the presented article is
to reveal how Greek people experience and cope with the
current unpleasant economic situation in their country.
Through the literature review conducted here, as well as
through everyday interaction with a large percentage of people,
it has been proven that there is a huge difficulty in dealing with
the existing circumstances since Greeks are not able to move
forward in the steps of the grieving process.
—Crisis, economy, grief, loss, survival.
