Some days you are the pigeon and some days you are the statue..
Do we like to accept it though?
A nice framework I’ve heard about when it comes to accepting tragedy is DABDA
Denial – Obviously it didn’t happen..
Anger – Generally, with the world..
Bargaining – Obviously, things can be the same again..
Depression – Realization and sadness..
Acceptance – Finally.. only now comes solution..
This could be applied to making big mistakes as well. However, ‘denial’ can always be misused as even a person telling the truth can be mistaken as someone denying it.
