“Maybe I won't get the closure I want. But who ever does, anyway? Closure is just some word someone came up with, but I don't think anyone really knows what it is. You leave or are left, and that is the end of the story. It is rarely clean or tidy. Maybe it could last forever if you let it; it could taper off into infinite half-lives, haunting you forever with its slow disintegration.
Or you could decide it's over, leave those loose strings loose, accept that the end is going to be frayed. Maybe that's really what closure is--know when it's time to give up on something that's lost its hope. Knowing when it's time to move on to the next thing that shines. Maybe sometimes you have to leave before you're ready to let go; sometimes you have to leave before someone is ready to let go of you. That's the rub of it--if you wait until you're ready to do everything, you'll never get anything done.”
