Stage 1: Denial and Isolation
This can't be happening. He/she will come back, get better, want to stay married.
Stage 2: Anger
How can he/she have rejected me? It's not my fault. He/she has changed. I hope he/she dies. Guilt about angry feelings can cause depression.
Stage 3: Bargaining
"If we get help"
"If I'm better"
"If I'm good, we will get back together."
Stage 4: Depression
Self-pity, feelings of hopelessness and rumination about lost plans for the future. Reality sets in. Increase in alcohol or drug use may occur to dull the pain.
Stage 5: Acceptance
It's over. I need to make adjustments. I need to get a balance in my social life, get my career on track, do my best with parenting, and get on with my life.
