What were the seven stages of grief?

Hmm, I think the first one is supposed to be Shock.

I guess going numb when I was told about it, was my reaction.

Then, the next one is Denial followed by Guilt.

Can't say I really experience either of these stages. Perhaps it was just the way things happened or something.

The next ones are Anger and Depression.

Well, depression is a natural thing for me to experience, so that's probably what happened...jumped all the earlier stages to get to it. It'll probably stick around for a very long time, though I'm hopeful that I'll be able to manage it....:crazy: Hope incidentally is the next stage after depression. Though I don't think I've really entered it until I find more to be hopeful for.

The hard thing is most of my normal coping mechanisms are taken a hit by this specific cause. Hiding from it at work, or doing some shop therapy, are kind of restricted by my current situation. Though I was planning to get a haircut today, so I should try to still do that...so maybe at least my mood won't show as much.

After hope comes Acceptance. Which I suppose has always been something I've had a hard time with. It wasn't until I was set at working at Open Text after my previous layoff that I full accepted all of it.

"And acceptance is the answer to *all* my problems. today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation---some fact of my life---unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake..."

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
