Do we really need closure? Or do we just like our egos stroked? Or… are we afraid of looking like the “bad guy”? I’ve struggled with these viewpoints for quite some time. I always felt a need to have closure- even if it was not warranted. What does closure allow us to do after the fact? Anything that we would have missed had we not close out the circumstance?
To me- everything lies in your intentions and actions. Do you intend (and take action) to incorporate improvements for your highest good? Are you considerate of how you make others feel? Do you hold yourself accountable for your actions (be it good or bad)?
If you can honestly answer these questions with yes- you’ve already created the space for closure. Closure does not have to be a physical thing. Us humans have the tendency to over complicate things.
We would like for closure to be a reciprocated process, but that may not always be the case. We can’t get stuck in if it is (or is not). We have to be strong in valuing ourselves, learning lessons, and moving forward 🌈
