I was having a text conversation with a friend a couple of weeks ago about an issue I was having. She left me with the statement:
CLARITY + CLOSURE = PEACE
This statement seems so simple and makes sense, but what if you never get closure? What if you never get the answer to your questions or resolve the issue? Are you able to let it go? Closure can come in various forms, but if it does come in the way that you want it to???
A couple of years ago, my father passed away. It was unexpected and I was shocked. We were not on the best of terms, but I was at peace about the situation. Is this the closure I wanted for my father, no. There were things left unsaid and questions still not answered to this day, but I am at peace about the situation. I had to find closure in a different way. I always thought my father and I would talk things out, he would get his life together, and things would get better...not back to the way it use to be, but better.
I think people going their whole lives looking for their form of closure and sometimes never reach it. Tonight I am going to have a closure for myself. I know how I want it to end...but I am ready for closure in other ways. Even if it means spending time alone, losing a friend, changing my life as I know it and have become comfortable with.
Tonight will be a great night. I am excited and scared, but I know whatever happens tonight it will be for the best!!!
