Denial: everything is fine

In speaking of denial, Burgess points out that it can begin before the relationship has officially ended. “Denial is the stage where we have a difficult time coming to terms with the fact that our partner or we are no longer happy in the relationship. You may want to act like everything is normal, and go on about the relationship as if nothing has happened.” It’s that time when the love and happiness may be gone, but you’re still holding onto the title of “in a relationship.”
