Closure: Why you need it…or not.


‘You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation, trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened…or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on.’ - Tupac Shakur.

‘Letting go doesn’t mean you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you have control over is yourself.’ - Deborah Rider.

‘I’m done with those. Regrets are for people who have failed.’ -Ned Vizzini 

‘It’s good to leave doors closed. Otherwise you will be tempted to go back and go through them again.’ -Joshua.J.O 

‘Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.’ -Antoine De Saint-Exupery

‘When hungry, eat your rice; when tired, close your eyes. Fools may laugh at me, but wise men will know what I mean.’ -Lin Chi

‘We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.’ -Aristotle

‘What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.’ -John Ruskin

‘Even if you’re on the right track, you get run over if you just sit there.’ -Will Rogers.

‘Never be afraid to laugh at yourself, after all, you might be missing out on the joke of the century.’ -Dame Edna Everage

‘For truly I say unto you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot will pass from the law until it is accomplished.’ -Matthew 5:18

And my favorite;
‘Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third, to figure out whether you like it or not.’ -Virgil Garnett Thomson


I find that if you are not getting the closure you feel you require, and cannot give it to yourself, then it’s probably not as necessary as you think it is.
