Closure Quotes

1. “Almost relationships mostly end without closure. You may never know why things ended or why it fizzled out, was it you or was it them — and so many other unanswered questions.

8. “Closure: Now there’s a silly idea. Nothing ever gets closure, the only real closure is death. Maybe it’s not a good idea to stare a dying bird in the eye. It might reflect something back at you that you don’t want to see.” ― A.D. Aliwat

9. “Dictionaries describe closure as the “act of closing or the state of being closed; a bringing to an end, a conclusion.” In Gestalt psychology it is the “tendency to create ordered and satisfying wholes.”” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

10. “Don’t waste any more of your precious time seeking closure because he’s already provided it to you.

14. “If you’ve ever let yourself fall to pieces, cried, begged and groveled to a man to take you back after a breakup, or if you have ever sought closure, then you’ve never learned the art or the power of no contact. Now is the time to learn it, live it and master it.” – Leslie Braswell

15. “It wasn’t closure, really. But I’d said the right things. I’d hit on some truths. Maybe some things didn’t get closure. Maybe some things weren’t really worth it, or didn’t really need it, and after a while the unimportance would become obvious.” ― Vee Hoffman

16. “It’s normal to want closure, but realize you’re the only one that needs it. He doesn’t.” – Leslie Braswell
