Normal and healthy in response to a loss Means we loved that person
Denial – not want to face reality Bargaining – seek to change reality Anger – arises due to failure to change reality Depression – flatness, emotionally shutting down Acceptance – facing reality and working through the emotions that result from the loss, verbally saying good-bye. Everyone reacts differently. Ultimately, moments of sadness will get shorter, less intense and occur less frequently.
