Closure

I don’t know why people feel the need to have some form of closure when they already know something is over. You know it’s over because there is no progression. It’s just stagnant like some swamp in the deep south and it’s probably been that way for awhile.

But if we think that there is still a chance for something to flow again, we keep ourselves stuck waiting for movement from whatever or whoever we are seeking it from. This movement could simply be an explanation as to why things didn’t work out, but doing this disempowers us.

You see, closure comes from within, not from someone else. Nobody has that much power over us and as long as we wait for some form of closure, we are giving our power over to them.

Closure is something that comes from this inner knowing that we deserve better. It is a form of honoring the self that says, “I don’t need an explanation as to why something didn’t work out. It just didn’t, and now I am moving onto something that will.”

That may sound simplistic, but when you think about it, it’s really that easy to do. The hard part is to continue to wait for some kind of explanation from somebody who never honored you in the first place, else there wouldn’t be the need for closure.

You can wait all day for someone else to give you this closure, but as long as you do this, you will be closing yourself off to other people and opportunities that will honor you for who you already are.

If there is someone in your life or some situation that hasn’t worked out the way you wanted or hoped, give yourself the gift of closure this holiday season. Say goodbye to anything and anyone who doesn’t see your value. If someone can’t see your value, then it’s only because they can’t see their own.

Shut the door on anyone who doesn’t see your worth and open it to those who do. They are right there on the other side of it, just waiting for you to walk through it.
