So you've just received some terrible news.
Your relationship has come to an end, and you have SO MANY FEELINGS.
At first you just try to go about your life as usual, but everything feels so different.
You can't believe what has happened. There's no other way to put it: you're in DE-NILE.
So you start to busy yourself with lots of projects.
Anything to take your mind off the pain.
You even tell yourself you're going to pick up cooking again, so you can treat your body right.
But the projects don't really help, and they just make you even more frustrated with your life.
So you start to feel hopeless again.
You rush into the arms of your friends and family, desperate for consolation.
Your best friends help you talk it out over coffee.
In your state of despair, you start to get really down on yourself.
You can't seem to get ANYTHING right these days.
Soon you begin ruminating on your failed relationship, thinking about everything that went wrong.
And then you realize that this person maybe wasn't as great as you made them out to be.
So suddenly you find yourself going totally nuts. Congratulations, you've made it to the next stage of grief: ANGER.
Your anger can barely be contained. You're like a beast unhinged.
You start taking it out on those around you, and it makes life unbearable for everyone.
Soon all this anger really starts to wear on you. You'd do anything to break free from this torture.
So you promise yourself you'll do better. Maybe if you start dating again you'll get your mojo back.
Hey, maybe if you even try hard enough, you can win them back again! Yep, you're in BARGAINING mode now.
So you decide to put yourself out there.
At first, dating seems really confusing and complicated, because you haven't done it in so long.
But before you know it, things are going pretty well.
You're so happy to be back in the saddle again!
But then you find yourself writing people off for silly reasons.
Fed up with it all, you start alienating yourself again.
And when the pendulum of emotion inevitably swings back around, you start getting desperate.
And before you know it, you're deep in the throes of the next stage of grief: DEPRESSION.
You're CONVINCED you're going to be alone forever.
And you're crying all the time. Everywhere. In front of everyone.
But your friends come to your aid yet again.
They convince you that it's going to get better, and you slowly but surely convince yourself that they're right.
After a good long while, you work your way through all the pain and make it to the final stage: ACCEPTANCE.
The world is ready for you again: go get 'em, champ!
