In this wonderful article, one of our members – Duane – offers his take on what one can expect throughout the affair recovery process as it relates to the 7 Stages of Grief – all based on his own experiences.Elisabeth Kübler-Ross first introduced The 5 Stages of Grief in her work with people with a terminal illness or who experienced a catastrophic loss.
It’s a wild, uncensored ride and I hope you want to take it with me. You will be totally miserable…and you are going to KILL it!
I realized later, unsurprisingly, that this drawing greatly resembles the Elizabeth Kübler-Ross stages of grief.
If you go through a difficult breakup, you’ll likely cycle through these emotions. You’ll tell yourself: “Its all my fault” “I’m a horrible person” “I must not be lovable” You’ll feel varying degrees of despair after the end of a relationship depending on how attached you were- at it’s worst, the anguish can be pretty soul-crushing. You may feel sad for a while, and then angry, or you may switch rapidly between the two.
Like a Pied Piper this master illusionist can lead you to Hell all while making you feel flattered to be chosen to go there.
Only when you wake up in Hell do you realize the real evil that existed in his fluted song.
