We’ve all been hurt. Betrayed, abandoned, abused, kicked when we’re down... Being human can be painful, even awful. Everyone will go through the stages of grief: shock, anger, denial, bargaining, depression, and finally, acceptance. If (or when) you are grieving a loss, give yourself the gift of time. The stages are not necessarily linear - you may be bargaining with God in the midst of your anger. But at your own pace and according to your own internal knowing, you will emerge in acceptance.
