Because it's difficult to face the truth.

You want to know what we don't like (aside from disrespecting each other's fandoms!)? Knowing that our favorite show's ending in a few days. *cough* Got To Believe *cough, cough* But don't worry, we're allowing you to wallow in your misery, because that's the first step to moving on.

You see, when your fave TV show ends, you undergo different stages before you can finally accept the truth that it's not here to stay—pretty much like recovering after a breakup.

Stage 1: Shock. You can't process the news, so you end up staring out the window. Your mind goes completely blank. A few minutes later, you just think of how your favorite TV couple looked so good together and all the good moments they shared on the series. Then your mind goes blank again. It's a cycle.

Stage 2: Denial. You think you must have misread the news or the announcement on TV. Maybe the announcement said last 5 months, instead of last 5 days. Maybe your friend got the news wrong. Maybe the show's coming back next year for a new season, or they're going to come up with a movie version. Maybe... Maybe... Your mind is operating on a lot of maybes now just to invalidate the truth.

Stage 3: Anger. You feel mad at the show's producers. C'mon, they can't just end a top-rating series like that. They must be getting enough sponsors to run the show for the next three years. They can't. They just can't! You laugh, cry, scream, wail. Repeat.

Stage 4: Self-Blame. You blame yourself for the show's ending. Maybe you haven't really watched all the episodes. Maybe you should've bought all the merchandise the producers came up with. Maybe you should've asked all of your friends to watch it. Another set of maybes enter your mind. Ahhh!

Stage 5: Acceptance. This may take months and months, but you will arrive at this stage too. You will finally accept the truth that nothing is permanent in this world. You will finally be able to come home from school without expecting your favorite show to be on TV. You will finally have enough courage to think that in an alternate universe, your fave TV couple is living a happy life. You will finally be able to let go.
