Moving on Without the Need for Closure


On this show…we are allowing the door to close, the song to end, and the chapter to play out because we’re moving on without the need for closure. Feels unfinished, huh? People want answers whether there are any or not. If not, we tend to fill in the blanks with the not-so-rosiest of answers. Are you thinking about your own unanswered questions or the time you didn’t receive closure? How did you move on? Maybe you didn’t and you’re still carrying shards of that failed relationship around with you, comparing every new encounter. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how dangerous that can be. Put yourself in their shoes. That’s it, it’s so difficult to see this from any other angle than the one you’re struggling with. What did I do? Where did I go wrong? How can I fix it? Who else is going to hurt me?

If you can’t get there on your own then I’ll move this topic around, from angle to angle for you, to make sure you’re seeing all the possible sides.
