According to the Internet, the 7 Stages of Healing are:
7) New Life
I can’t really say what stage I am in because it changes. At times I feel extremely depressed and at other times I feel totally happy and it’s as if I’m ready to accept. But most often, I feel like I am constantly hovering within all seven stages….all at the same time.
I am still angry, and I can’t tell if I am truly in denial or not or just upset. I feel like I’ve accepted the situation, and yet I’m still depressed and keep blaming myself. I feel so much regret inside. Despite all this, a part of me is very happy with the way I’ve made new friends and how I’ve become more mentally and emotionally independent and strong.
But there are always times when I relapse once again into a deep, dark hole of desolation. Even when I am out and about, smiling or joking with my friends, there is always that one small laceration in my heart that just won’t heal—made of shadows delineating the past, broken dreams and painful memories that all refuse to leave me at peace.
