A relationship that has ended often leaves a job to be done. The idea that we need
“closure” points to the void that has been left hanging open: blame or gratitude
unexpressed, words unspoken, understanding unreached. Closure too can be
achieved in multiple ways. Sometimes it requires a conversation. Other times, a long
email sent to our counterpart, with no expectation of response, is sufficient. And
simply reaching a new phase of growth on one’s own can clear the void.
