5 Stages of Grief Meme by Jabnormalities 5 Stages of Grief Meme by Jabnormalities
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the 5 stages of grief, these are the steps many people go through when trying to cope with loss. It can be the loss of a friend, a loved one, a pet… a favorite pair of glasses? Maybe they received terrible news? Maybe they have cancer? Hey, if you wanna give your characters cancer that’s your business. If they cry over breaking a nail, then that’s their business ;p

(…but for practical purposes it is mostly seen in life threatening diseases and/or death. Just so we’re clear. For meme purposes do whatever you'd like.)

My example: [link]

Brief Summary:
Denial: Still in shock. Can’t believe it is really happening. Sometimes make up excuses or pretend everything’s still the same.
Anger: Reality starts to sink in. Why did this have to happen!? Grumpiness and bitter spreads easily, so they’re not the most fun people to be around at this stage.
Bargaining: What if I have done this? What if I had done that? Praying and promising, etc. etc. Trying to find a way out.
Depression: Kinda self explanatory; facing reality and giving up. All hope is lost, life is over, there’s no point anymore.
Acceptance: The griever realizes that this is the way things are. They may not be “ok” but they will learn to live with what has happened.

You can also find an animated example here:

Caution, the giraffe gets quite angry and may not be suitable for small children to hear, but several words are beeped out ^^;

Yeah...she's been through HELL and the idea I have for it means she looses her 'brother', someone she's got such a close bond to they might as well once been the SAME PERSON. At the sadness...she'd off herself by then. o.o

its kinda hard to use on paint. the transparentness makes it so you can copy and put it on there

I tried to upload the PSD version, but it won't let me change the main document type. I did make the background  green and non-transparent so that may help ^^;
