Five stages of Grief

” Lexie: Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.

Mark: It isn’t just death we have to grieve. It’s life. It’s loss. It’s change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That’s how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can’t breathe, that’s how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won’t feel this way. It won’t hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can’t control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you’re past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Chief: Acceptance.

– Lines from Greys Anatomy


These for me are some of the most beautiful lines ever written! They are honest, relate-able, and is about something that we have all been through. Loss, Grief, Change are all emotions that we feel on a daily basis, and somehow we learn to accept it and move past it to a point where it doesn’t hurt that bad.

The Five stages of grief is the current state of my mind, and although I am not going through them in the order above, I am currently on the last stage.

I lost my best friend!

And maybe this time for sure, and now I don’t even want things to work out! A lot has been said, lots of harsh words exchanged, and now things are over!

I went from denial, to being simply mad! I bargained with him and him with me, things still didn’t work out! And right now, I am in acceptance mode! And I think depression is taking over!

And I am sure, I will be over that too soon enough, and then the grief would be gone! And I would be able to move on!

But surely you will be missed!
