I've been thinking of friends who are struggling from their broken relationships. They feel there's something unfinished, and they can't move on because their exes won't talk and give them the closure they need.
Waiting for closure from exes is an exercise in futility if they are determined to cut off contact. Maybe their hearts are blocked with hurt, anger and negativity. Or they lack empathy. Or if they were deceitful, maybe they are cowards who can't take responsibility for the emotional damage they have caused.
Whatever the reason, whether the exes may need help themselves, it's best to find your own closure through other means like creative outlets, self-care, and surrounding yourself with supportive friends. This article has more practical advice about how to get closure from a relationship.
Starting a new journey may seem daunting at first, but it is liberating to move into a period of soul-searching, and self-discovery. It may take time to heal, but when we are willing to learn from negative experiences, forgive those who have hurt us, and accept that some people are meant to share our lives for a limited time, it is easier to let go, and allow our hearts to fill with love again.
