REORGANIZATION (takes 18 to 24 months to stabilize)
This is the last step of the grieving process. You will begin to feel a sense of relief, renewed hope, peace, acceptance, and no longer are “obsessed” with death. You will regain your judgment making, interests in goals and your future, renewed energy, and normal eating and sleeping habits. This is the stage when you finally begin to accept what happened. Keep in mind that on significant days, like birthdays and death anniversary, you will experience a peak of all four stages. But, the time will pass, and you will begin to smile again.
