This stage was the most daunting for me because I’m not sure I understood what I was doing when I reflect on my experiences with bargaining. Most examples I’ve found were for people with terminal illnesses, not an abrupt death of a family member and best friend. I wasn’t sure I had the time to bargain while searching for Loretta, especially if you consider my lack of faith and belief in a higher power at the time.
Thank you all for reading and lending me words of support and encouragement. This blog, along with engaging people to help raise awareness on the issue of violence and the survivors of violent crime have been major conduits of therapy for me.
Please stay tuned for a very, very exciting announcement on my next step in storytelling.
