It's good to see you moving through the five stages of grief.
If we get stuck in one stage or the other, the process of grieving is not complete. Thus there will be no new cheese. A person MUST go through the five stages to have stilton again. Not everyone goes through the stages at the same time. It is different for each person.
The five stages of grief are:
1-Denial-"this can't be happening to me", my stilton should be fine.
2-Anger-"why me?", feelings of wanting to fight back or get even with the stilton for going bad.
3-Bargaining-bargaining often takes place before the loss. Attempting to make deals with Carter to stop the loss of the stilton.
4-Depression-overwhelming feelings of hopelessness, frustration, bitterness, self pity, mourning loss of the stilton as well as the hopes, dreams and plans for future cheeses.
5-Acceptance-there is a difference between resignation and acceptance. Realization that the stilton is gone, that it is not the cheese's fault, the cheese didn't leave you on purpose.
If you love something let it go...
