Zoe shared a photo of herself and the former couple’s 18-month-old daughter, Harper-Rose, on Instagram on Wednesday, where she spoke about the “7 stages to healing from a broken heart, loss or trauma”.
The 29-year-old said she had just moved past the first stage – “shock and denial”.
They say that there are 7 stages to healing from a broken heart, loss or trauma. That these stages are essential to the psychological processing of emotions, and it’s possible to move across them in different patterns. You could stay in one for months. Years. Your could run through all 7 in a matter of weeks. 1. Shock and denial 2. Pain and guilt 3. Anger and bargaining 4. Depression and reflection 5. The upward turn 6. Reconstruction 7. Acceptance and new hope It’s been around 6 weeks since our separation and I’ve only recently went past stage 1. Shock and denial No matter where you are. What level of suffering you are in, know that just like joy, pain isn’t forever. This too will pass. Be kind and compassionate to yourself. Take the lessons from your experience and see it as an opportunity for personal grow. As a wise friend recently reminded me “Zoe you do not grow from standing on the mountain, you grow from walking the valley” ????????????
