a grief observed

Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross tells us there are five stages of grief:


According to Kubler-Ross, we progress through these five stages during the many months, even years, of the grieving process, usually in a back-and-forth fashion.

Sometimes we get stuck in one phase for a longer period of time than the others and sometimes we skip stages altogether.  The following video demonstrates a young woman who gets stuck in denial for what seems an eternity and then jumps quickly into acceptance.

To save time, skip to 45 seconds into the video.

When I saw the title in my google reader, I was so prepared for something serious. And I was ready to talk about how we had to process the stages of grief with our oldest this year over moving.

But this is so much better.

This is just too funny! When she said 20 seconds I felt nervous, and for good reason I guess!
