You guys have completely missed the author's point in using the word "permission". They aren't literally telling you that you require their permission to grieve. They're acknowledging these types of grief as being real and legitimate when other people want to tell us to simply buck up and "get over it". They're telling us it's OK to grieve and mourn and feel a sense of loss and that it's natural for it to take awhile for us to move on from these things.
