What is Closure?

Finding closure is a major step in the grief recovery process. 

Closure is about being at peace with some form of resolution in place.

The lack of closure resulting from unexpected separation by deaths, divorces and breakups can often leave us shell-shocked and stuck in our tracks. We often feel lost and confused, and we do not know what to do next. 

After experiencing a life-altering event, it is so important to have closure. It is about tying up the loose ends, wrapping up old chapters of your life, so you can begin the next.

If the old chapters of your life are not wrapped up properly, spillovers from the last chapters can affect the following ones, making your life complicated, messy and disruptive. You may find yourself spinning around in circles, losing direction and clarity.  

This may affect your current life, health, career, relationships and the people around you whom you love, such as families, friends and co-workers. 

Questions becomes why does it become so difficult to move on when we are not given closure or understanding?... to be continued.
