Recently I read a letter written to an advice columnist which detailed a relationship that ended after (3 years). The man in this relationship asked his now ex why she was dumping him and she told him.
"It's not you, it's me". When he pressed her he got more of what he termed "evasive answers".
He now questions if she was ever "in love" with him. He wanted to know how one could tell if they are really in love...etc
Naturally the columnist assured him he would find true love with someone who felt the same way about him as he does for them and so forth....etc
The letter got me to thinking, What's the upside to knowing why you were dumped?
Will getting "Closure" ease your pain or change your reality?
Will it feel better if they said it's YOU?
I posted the following comment.
Feel free to let me know if you agree or disagree.
"Closure" is overrated!
All you really need to know is this person no longer wants to be with you.
