Thank you both! This has all been very helpful and I appreciate your kind words and for sharing a part of yourselves.
I agree with both of you that the stages are not in order and recycling is part of the process. The anger phase, although not comfortable, is much easier than the depression stage for me but usually precedes the depression stage no doubt. Sadness is comfortable for me but I must keep it in check before it turns into the darkness of depression which is hard for me to climb out of:/
So here we go, figuring out this life, learning out lessons and continuing to grow and move forward. Thank you both again! I'll try to get a proper intro up in the near future
