Does Closure Really Help You to Move On?

Introduction to Closure

I have been on both ends of the “closure” spectrum. In my personal experience, I have found that closure has not helped me to move on. Instead, the closure has only reaffirmed my feelings and opened up a new world of questions and possibilities. Case in point, I recently had closure with an ex-boyfriend of mine. And since then I have been questioning if breaking up was the right decision. On the other hand, I know several people who claim that having closure has helped them to finally let go of their former significant others.”

I am sure we are all familiar with the term “closure”.

I am sure we are all familiar with the term “closure”. In general, it refers to a process in which you end a relationship and come to terms with it. It can be positive or negative; forced upon you or not; good or bad—it varies from person to person.

Closing out your feelings is important because it helps you move on from your past and start focusing on new things in your life. Sometimes closing out an emotional attachment can help us focus on our future goals instead of being stuck in old habits that no longer serve us well anymore (like being jealous). However, sometimes closing out emotional attachments leads us into unhealthy relationships where we hurt ourselves more than anyone else ever could!

We have all sought it or have had it forced upon us at some point in our lives.

We have all sought it or have had it forced upon us at some point in our lives. Closure is a common term and often used to describe the process of moving on from something that has happened. Whether it be a death, divorce or even just breaking up with someone.

Closure can be helpful or not helpful depending on the situation you are in. For example, if someone dies unexpectedly then closure may not be needed as there will always be questions about what could have been done differently leading up to their death which would cause distress for those left behind by their passing away too soon (some people even blame themselves). However, if someone dies after years of suffering from an illness then having closure might help reduce any lingering feelings they may still have regarding their condition rather than focusing solely on what could have been done differently during those last days/weeks etcetera instead

Yes and no. It depends on the person and what they need closure for. For some people, closure is a way of dealing with difficult feelings that have been plaguing them for years or even decades. They may have experienced severe abuse or trauma in their childhood and are now trying to find a way of dealing with this painful memory of their past so they can get on with their lives as well as possible. Closure can also be helpful in getting over an illness or other medical condition; this means that it will allow you to stop worrying about how your body feels right now (and yes, this can sometimes cause anxiety) while also allowing yourself time away from your symptoms so that they don’t take over every aspect of your life anymore.*

Closed-mindedness is a common ailment among many people, especially those of us who grew up in the 21st century. We were taught to believe that there was no such thing as closure; that it was an unnecessary concept and one which only served to keep us stuck in a rut of unfulfilled expectations and unanswered questions.

The truth is, however: That closure can be good or bad depending on your situation. But more importantly, you need to know what kind of closure best suits your needs!

Closure doesn’t mean that your relationship is over; it just means that you’ve come to terms with what happened in your past relationship.

Closure can be difficult because it makes you think about someone who isn’t there anymore, but instead of dwelling on their presence, focus on yourself for once! You deserve happiness after all these years of hurtful relationships—so go get it!

Most people think that they need closure to move on with their life. Closure means that you have made up your mind about something or someone who has hurt you before so that you can move forward in life and live without holding onto the past anymore. But it’s important to know the difference between closure and moving on because sometimes people just want to be done with something but don’t actually want to end things completely. They just want some time away from each other while still keeping in contact through text messages or emailing every now and then just so as not feel cut off completely from another person (see what I did there?).

I’ll be honest: The first few days after breaking up were really hard for me because my heart was bleeding from all these wounds which had been inflicted upon me by this dude who used his power over me until he could use it no more; but then slowly over time those wounds healed enough for me not feel such intense pain anymore…

I’ve also been wondering if things could have worked out between us if we tried to be friends earlier on in the relationship.

After all, friendship is a good way to get closure on a relationship. It lets you see things from a different perspective and gives you time to heal yourself before moving forward with your life. A good friend can help you focus on what matters most. Like spending time with other people or doing things that make you happy. And give peace of mind during times when everything else seems like too much work (which is almost always).

Closing a chapter on an important relationship can be very cathartic and help you move on from it. But it doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t keep thinking about your ex all day long or miss him/her until they come back into your life again.

I think we all have our own way of dealing with breakups: some people choose not to see each other anymore; others get together every once in a while just because they feel like they should. Some decide not to talk about it at all until one day everything comes out at once (which is usually never). Whatever works best for YOU!

Overall though, it seems that there is no way of knowing whether or not you will benefit from having closure because everyone handles breakups differently.

Closure is a personal thing. Some people need it, and others don’t. There is no right or wrong way to do it. It’s important to remember that closure isn’t a cure for your breakup woes. It’s simply the process of moving on with your life after a breakup (or relationship). If you’re feeling like taking an extra step in order to get closure, then great! But if not, don’t worry about it too much; just focus on doing what makes sense for your situation at hand

Find what works for you.

Closing a door on a relationship can be a good thing, but it’s not always the right thing to do. The closure you seek may actually make you feel worse in the long run.

If the relationship was toxic and destructive, then closing the door on it might help you move past that part of your life and find yourself again. But if there’s no real reason for breaking up (you just felt bored or something). Then this process will only result in more pain later on down the road. And even then, sometimes people don’t realize how much hurt has been caused until years later when they start becoming less carefree due to having grown accustomed to single life over time

Conclusion

In conclusion, closure is a very personal thing and it may work for some people but not others. If you are looking for closure as a means of moving on then my advice would be to find what works best for you and follow that path.
