How to Create Your Own Closure
1. Realize that you are giving up control over your life to others by making the choice to wait for them before acting in your own best interest.
2. Decide that you've had enough of this vicious, pernicious cycle.
3. Give yourself permission to move on with your life without any input or approval from anyone else.
4. Put the matter behind you by making an independent decision about how you will handle it and following through on your decision.
5. Squash lingering doubts by telling yourself it will be okay. Believe that things will be okay.
6. Deal will your feelings by writing about them in a journal. Affirm your decision to move on in writing every day.
