This is the stage where you begin to consider the "what ifs." You might think, "Maybe I shouldn't have watched all nine seasons in a week," or even "If everyone was nicer to Jimmy maybe Keith would be alive." You overanalyze and try to think of all of the things that could've gone differently. You need to regain control. So maybe you tell yourself that you should watch it again, just not in one sitting.
Now that its over, what are you supposed to do with your life? Be social…no way. Leave your bed..uhm no. Go to the gym? Not a chance. This stage is often characterized by too much chocolate ice cream and endless texts and tweets about said show. You may feel regret for finishing the series so quickly, and even sadness at the fact that you actually have to get a life now.
Congratulations. This is a stage worth celebrating! You've made it. No more late nights crying over Nathan and Haley breaking up or Lucas and Peyton leaving the show. No more opening Netflix and debating watching the whole thing over again. You can move on. Now you can maybe even start a new series!
Can you tell which show I might still be grieving? Oops. Are you guilty of any of these?
