Have You Lost Someone Who Was Your Everything?
There are various stages of grief. I incorporate in 2-8 below a combination of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ 5 Stages of Grief model and British psychiatrist Colin Murray Parkes’ model of grief, developed based on Bowlby’s theory of attachment, suggesting there are four phases of mourning when experiencing the loss of a loved one.
1. There Is No Right Or Wrong Way To Grieve
2. Shock And Denial
3. Pain And Guilt
4. Anger And Bargaining
5. Depression And Loneliness
The Truth is that Life is NOT Fair
Love Never Dies
6. The Upward Turn
7. Reconstruction And Working Through
8. Acceptance And Hope
