Did you know…?

Published July 10, 2015 by lynn k scott

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “Stages of Grief”, but did you know who came up with them?

I, myself, didn’t know until December of last year.  The final day of my human development class; we passed a piece of paper around the class.  On this paper, was a variety of quotes from Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.  Each student chose a quote that got their attention and read it aloud.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross was a psychiatrist and journalist and the stages were for terminally ill patients:  Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance.  Those stages apply to the majority of people, whether they themselves are terminally ill or they have lost someone close to them.  She spent a good part of her career observing, talking and being with those who were dying.

We had studied a bit of her just a couple weeks prior to the end of the semester.  I found her work very interesting and comforting.  I believe part of that was due to the fact I still had to write my final paper on “death and dying”.  As it was about my sister, my emotions were reeking havoc and I was an incoherent mess; to put it mildly.  One might think it’s a morbid topic, yet to read her work and observations is very enlightening.

I have posted two Quotes of the Day for today and tomorrow.  Both are by Kubler-Ross and they just seem really appropriate.  If you’d like to learn a bit more about her, I’ve provided a link for you.
