    Out of the four stages to get to acceptance, I would say anger and bargaining were my "quickest" to get through. There has only been one very significant event off the top of my head that I would consider it bargaining - and it has no relation to a person/being/god and more along the lines to an event that took place.

    The lengthiest of these four stages would have to be denial and depression, or what I like to call, the beginning and near the ending. It took a lot of energy to get into it and it took just as much energy to finally snap out of it.

    My bargaining stage consists of me contemplating offing myself to spare myself from more of the same shit. "If I end it now, I'll never ever have to deal with this again."

    Of course I'm still here so I've never acted on it.

    I didn't go through any of the stages and just went straight to acceptance.

    In my experience, at first a lot of what I feel is just bewilderment. It is one thing to imagine something happening, it's another thing to be confronted with it in reality. A short while later it starts to hit me and I begin to feel sad and a bit angry. Then I alternate between wallowing in it and living life normally/trying to live life normally (or maybe seeking out a little bit more intense physical experiences). Eventually I come to accept that I have experienced a loss, and after a while pain starts to fade.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
