In the few days that have passed since MCR's breakup, I went through the stages of grief. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. I only reached acceptance after reading Gerard's beautifully written letter addressing the breakup. It made it feel like a goodbye which was okay. It kinda helps you let go but cling on too.
In a way, this is similar to the loss of someone we love. The stages of grief are still there We have ended up losing something, but we must be happy that it was there.
