Stages of Grief

    1. Denial – We are always taught to be hopeful. We grow up believing in magic. Yes our bubbles burst somewhere along the way, but that does not stop the core of our innocent heart to stop believing. The first thing you do when you have lost something is think that it is a prank. Why? Because that feeling is comforting. “I’ve lost it for a second but this is a tease; it will come back to me.” Denial is instantaneous. There is no escaping denial. The problem with denial is it can make you get stuck in limbo. The longer you shove your problem under the rug of today, the longer it will take for you to deal with the problem and come out of it. The last thing you want is to have your mind stuck in “what was” and never be able to muster up the strength to come out of it. Do not deny yourself the privilege of the truth. Seek the facts; they are tangible. The first thing we do when grief strikes, is “not have the patience to deal with it” so we shut all doors and sit in our room and pretend like everything is okay—until that one moment when our conscience knocks at the door and says, “I’m sorry, but you have to deal with the truth.”
