In my youth I needed closure from everyone I felt hurt by. It was so intense that I would spend countless hours and days drafting letters trying to convince them that the “only” way I could “move on” was through the many ways they could give me closure.
As I’m aging, I realize that those things weren’t for them, but for me. They served as excuses to keep them around or to get their attention in hopes of changing the hurt. I’m learning that closure is mine-really.
This is not to say that I don’t experience hurt feelings from unresolved issues, but I’m more aware now than ever that it is not anyones responsibility to give me closure. Also that the discomfort is normal. We can choose how we move on which is priceless in our own healing. One love to those.
