Why Failed Relationships Should Pursue Closure

Couple problems

As with the many things in life, relationships are never perfect. There are many couples out there who have their differences, and some often argue about those differences. You will be hard-pressed to find one who enjoys smooth sailing. Sadly, some have problems that are bad enough to lead to a split or divorce. Getting separated may not be the ideal thing you want to happen in your future, but for some, this could be the only solution. It could just mean that they were not meant to be together at all, and going their own ways is the right path for them to take.

Above all, it is important to have closure. How important could it be to those who have experienced being in a failed relationship?

Leaving the Past Behind

Sometimes, getting closure is not something that you have to wait for. Instead, you have to will it. Some couples going through a divorce participate in hostile banter. All they do is keep arguing about what they hated about each other when they were together. If you want to go that path, you may not run out of hateful things to come up with against your ex.

Closure does not require the approval of other people. If you acknowledge that the past is over, then you will finally get yours.

Put the Focus Back to the Right People


Divorce does not happen overnight. It would take a long time of being fed up with pet peeves and mistaken preferences before one would give up on a relationship. When you figure in a fight or intense argument, it feels that the world around you has vanished. You and your partner would then be the sole beings who are intent on shattering each other. But the reality is that there are many people affected by your actions. They include your friends, family, and, most of all, your children.

Think of getting a divorce as a closure between you and your ex-spouse. You have had your time in the world, and this time you need to focus on the people who matter in your lives.

Moving On

Can you imagine how fun it would be when you and your former spouse keep bringing yourselves down, even after divorce? Well, there actually is no fun in that. Nothing good will also come out of it. After all, there is no benefit to that since you have already split up. It is understandable that there may be some residue of bitterness in your hearts, and that is why you continue to fight.

But ask yourself: do you think you can do this forever? No, you can’t. The thing that will keep you going on with your daily lives is to simply move on from it all. It is not difficult to do. Just make yourself choose between being angry and happy. For sure, you will choose the latter.

Things happen even if you do not want them to. Breaking up with the person you thought you would spend your life with is a total bummer, but that is life. But the great thing about the heart is that it is strong, and it will let you pick up the pieces. So close that old chapter in your book so that you can write a new one.
