clarity and caring needed  

stage of grief: anger 

 

 

The five stages of grief are: 

denial 

anger 

bargaining 

depression 

acceptance 


Not everyone will experience all five stages, and you may not go through them in this order. 

Grief is different for every person, so you may begin coping with loss in the bargaining stage and find yourself in anger or denial next. You may remain for months in one of the five stages but skip others entirely.
