Here are the five stages of grief:
  1. Denial
    Denial is the first stage of grief In this stage individuals have difficulty accepting the reality of the loss. They might feel numb in shock or disbelief. Denial acts as a defense mechanism allowing people to process their emotions more gradually

  2. Anger
    Anger emerges as the next stage. It s common for individuals to feel frustrated and helpless directing their anger towards others themselves or the situation.

  3. Bargaining
    Bargaining involves trying to regain control by making deals or promises often to a higher power in hopes of reversing or lessening the loss.

  4. Depression
    Depression is a stage where deep sadness sets in as the reality of the loss becomes undeniable. Individuals may feel overwhelmed hopeless and withdrawn. This stage is marked by feelings of emptiness and profound sorrow.

  1. Acceptance
    Acceptance is the final stage. It doesnt mean the person is okay with the loss Acceptance involves finding a way to move forward and adjust to life without the loved one or the situation that was lost.

Allowing oneself to go through these stages and seeking support from friends family or professionals can aid in the healing process.
