What Stage Of Relationship Grief Am I in? (Quiz)

Welcome to the world of relationship grief, a confusing, draining whirlpool of emotion that everyone insists will somehow work itself out in your favor in the end.

But getting to that rosy new dawn is anything but a predictable journey. And knowing where we stand when each day presents us with a new selection of emotional knots to unravel is not simple.

This quiz is my attempt to guess where I feel you stand right now. However, what most people do not understand about the five stages of grief (known as the Kübler-Ross model) is that this is not a linear process.

While you can go forward through the stages. You can also go backwards. The stage you find yourself in today, might not be the stage you find yourself in tomorrow.

If you are presented with new information. For instance, you learn that your ex is now in a new relationship. The emotional backslap will send you careering back through the stages because you will have to begin to reprocess the emotions that stem from this new situation.

Your journey through the five stages should not be measured on a day to day basis, but over time. We’re talking weeks, if not months at a time.

Having said all that. Here is where I currently think you stand on the path through the grieving process.
