Day 27. Stages of grief #SOL2020 Challenge #SOLSC

Today, March 27th, 2020, I’m participating in Two Writing Teachers’ Slice of Life Story Challenge.

 

 

Since my Coronavirus quarantine started 14 days ago, I have thought a lot about the five stages of grief by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. A friend of mine recommended me her memoir The Wheel of Life when my mom was dying of cancer in 2011. Since then, I always recommend it to people that are going through something similar. During the current crisis I feel that I am participating in a global grief: people are dying, and my own behavior can affect other people’s lives.

The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I think I have been through the five of them already.

  1. I hear ya! I tried so hard not to post about the pandemic. It really is all around us. I like the comparison to the 5 stages of grief. Remember, the stages are not always sequential and sometimes you might go back and forth between stages.
