What is Closure?
When we say we want “closure” at the end of a relationship, what do we actually want?
I have discovered that when people talk to me about needing closure, what they generally tend to mean is that they want answers and understanding about why things ended the way they did. I know I did.
Heartbroken people often believe that they will get the closure they so desperately desire, if only they could make sense of why. They expect that this knowledge will help them stop the overthinking and relieve them of their painful emotions.
I used to believe this too, but experience from my long ago relationship taught me it doesn’t really work that way.
Closure must come from within because if you look to your ex or anywhere else to find it, you will be left frustrated and helpless and you will prolong your healing process.
Here are some truths about closure that explain why it has to be something you do for you!
