7 Reasons "Closure Is Important For Your Life"

Closure, Relationships, Healing, Friendships, Personal Development, Amends, Apologize

“Nothing changes until people decide to do the things they must in order to bring about peace.” Shannon Adler

Is there something from your past that’s keeping you from moving forward?

Do you need to make amends with someone to bring closure for a more peaceful life? Or, is there someone wanting to make amends to you for closure and you have not given them the opportunity?

I received an email the other day from an old boyfriend needing closure to his past.  He wanted to make amends for all the wrongdoings that were done in our relationship. I figured I was cordial when we saw each other and we spoke, may be a laugh or so, so what was the big deal, right? I guess you can see closure, is not that big of a deal to me.

As I’m typing this post I can hear Donald Lawrence’s voice in my head singing “The Gift Looks Good on You, It Looks Good on You, The Gift Looks Good on You, It Looks Good.”  It’s a repeated lyric that’s been playing in my mind continuously when I talk to people that have a gift but haven’t taken the time to perfect it.

Some people’s gifts and talents come naturally and they expand their knowledge by perfecting it. Whether a class is taken or a mentor or coach is hired that person knows that in order to be the best at their gift, steps have to be taken to craft if perfectly.

Caterpillar, Butterfly, Confident

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

Maria Robinson

Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? Whether, it was with your family, acquaintances, or in a professional setting. Did it leave you with an unsettling feeling? As if you are an outcast? 

I’ve noticed that with many families, there is always a person that considers themselves the black sheep of the family. Meaning, a person stops coming around because they feel they are being judged by family, friends and/or others.
