Dedicated to everyone who've had their hearts broken.
THE 5 STAGES OF BREAKUP GRIEF
Stage 1: Denial
But everything is perfectly fine!
You've been together in more parties, travels, and family gatherings than Taylor Swift has changed boyfriends. Also, you have a dog. So where's this whole break-up thing coming from?
Stage 2: Anger
Cut to the next scene where you call up your bestfriends and deal with your problem like any mature individuals would
In your drunken state, it's highly likely you've said any of these with reference to your heartless scum of the earth ex
Of course, your similarly drunk bestfriends will all be like
Stage 3: Bargaining
But your body can only take up so much beer/tequila/wine so you [try to] sober up, throw all your pride aside, and say the magic words:
Followed by a lot of reasons and promises to convince him/her that, "this is just a phase and things will be better."
Because the truth is, you just can't imagine your life without that person
So you are willing to hang on to everything. Anything. You beg for the pain to stop.
Stage 4: Depression
But it didn't stop. It just won't.
But you constantly wake up in the middle of the night feeling like somebody has ripped your heart out from your chest and you can't breathe.
Weeks, months, or years would pass.
Yet a lot of questions are still left unanswered
Stage 5: Acceptance
And then one day, boom! You truly wake up.
You accept the reality that he/she is not coming back.
You stop blaming yourself for everything.
You. Finally. Let. Go.
Because life's too awesome to keep on grieving about the past!
You learn to love yourself more, among other things
And though things won't always be perfect
I can assure you this:
I promise. :)
