2 Timothy 3:16 ESV
"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,"
Closure is a state of being complete through mental and emotional detachment.
We gain much of this self-confidence from personal interactions with others. After all, gratitude comes from helping those in need therefore fulfilling our own self-worth. But sometimes these relationships can become astray. Often with no intentions from our part leaving us feel confused, vulnerable, and unappreciated. During times like these, nothing we seem to do is able to rectify the situation and we feel cast out, alone, abandoned by someone we once trusted. We are emotionally attached, entrapped
in the web of sentimental havoc.
Where do you need closure?
A torn relationship
Death in the family
Loss of a job
Failure of friendship
Personal health decline
Detached family members
This abridged list does not leave all of the situations one may need closure. Closure is simply the unavailable opportunity to express what you feel at the close of relationship, or situation, therefore, leaving the relationship incomplete. It can also manifest itself in open relationships where you are unable to speak your mind to affirm your physical distress this person puts upon you. When you are unable to release your emotions, you wonder, you hurt, all your concerns go unanswered and it eventually creates anger and fear. Sadly, when you miss closure, you miss the life lessons and blessings in disguise. This is because you will never be truly sure as to why this person was in your life, why you shared your skills, what you learned about yourself, and why you are better off because of it.
How to reach closure
Realize people come into your life for a reason, a season,or a lifetime
Closure begins by telling the truth about how you feel
Realize you are entitled to honor how you feel
Know when one door closes, another will open
Whatever you repress will become stress
Begin by opening the lines of communication with your feelings
If that person is no longer with you, write a letter and keep it
Take stock of your losses if there is nothing else you can do
Find acceptance once you do
Learn to stop blaming yourself
Learn to stop feeling sorry for yourself
When pangs of emotion give way again, remind yourself you took the necessary steps
and ask God for peace.
