When you experience loss, people say you’ll move through the 5 stages of grief….
Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance
….. What they don’t tell you is that you’ll cycle through them all every day.
Hey guys welcome back!!!!! I’m sooo excited about this post!
It’s been a while since I have given a movie/show suggestion but I’ll make up for it I promise.! Now, you all know how much I love the Genre Horror/thriller. Well, this is the show (movie) for you. There are no typical plots and I’m sure you’ll be grateful for that.
So, on top of being a thriller with exciting, surprising parts. So throughout the movie, different flashbacks help put the story together. In the beginning, you won’t realize that the story is coming together but towards the end, you understand why they split things up. One big thing that stuck out for me, was the theme of the different reactions to trauma. Each kid/character represented reactions to trauma. And I thought that was very cool because it can be implied in situations past death. So one of the kids represented depression. And how they dealt with depression was with drinking. The reason why I wanted to bring up these topics because there are a lot of people who don’t realize that they’re going through these stages of grief in their daily lives.
The mind knows the truth when your heart denies what it feels. When you don’t feel safe to let people in it is because you’re not ready to deal with the pain of honesty.

I don’t want to tell too much of the story and about each character because I don’t want to ruin anything. However, I want people to think about how this movie mirrors a lot of our lives.
For example, I relate so much to. Theo because she tries to ignore the fact that she is hurting. She becomes numb to life pretty much. That is how I deal with my problems and that isn’t good. I like to think that if I don’t speak about my problems, then I don’t have to deal with the emotions that come with it. A bad way to process life, am I right?!
Understand there’s no right or wrong way to grieve, including anticipatory grief. It’s like the ocean. It ebbs and it flows. There can be moments of calm. But out of nowhere, it can feel like you’re drowning.
I promise you guys and when I say promise, I mean it. I promise you will enjoy this show/movie. Let me know in the comments what do you think.
