a grief observed


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

Denial
Anger
Bargaining
Depression
Acceptance

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.

overheard in a kitchen

where have these days gone?
Overheard in a kitchen 
on a friday afternoon 
as a mother reminds her teenager 
she is grounded:

But mom! I have plans tonight! 

And with a perfectly straight face, 

 I don't have anything to do tomorrow! 
Why can't I be grounded tomorrow night?!
