DenialIt can’t be true!
In the beginning, you’re in a state of shock. You may tend to deny or not understand what’s happening to you and why. Your heart and your head are in confusion.
AngerI hate him/her!
Une fois le choc passé, tu peux ressentir de la colère, de la frustration, de l'injustice et de l'incompréhension. Tu peux vivre la rupture comme une trahison ou un abandon. Ta colère t'aide à te détacher.
BargainingI’ll change anything you want me to!
You may want to win the other person’s love back. You idealize your ex and you sometimes think that everything’s your fault. You may even be tempted to promise him/her certain things and think that, by doing that, there may be some hope that he/she will come back. Remember that there’s no point in trying to convince him/her to return. Accept it and move on.
Depression / SadnessIt’s all over – I don’t want to do anything anymore!
Crying is often part of heartbreak. You have a right to cry, and it’s often necessary. Experiencing this feeling of loss helps you realize that it’s really over. Take “vacations” from your pain by doing things you enjoy or going out with friends.
AcceptanceI still sometimes think about him/her, but I’m getting over it!
Even if it’s hard to believe, you gradually come to accept the breakup. You regain your self-confidence, you feel better, and the future looks more hopeful. You have new dreams and plans. Life goes on, and that’s all to the good.
