7 Amazing Ways to Get Closure after a Breakup. ...


Believe it or not, after a messy breakup there are plenty of ways to get closure. Many times throughout my life I have searched and searched for some way to feel normal again, and even just feel okay knowing that the meaningful relationship I was just in is completely over. It’s hard to expect this from your now ex, and you can’t really force it out of them if they want nothing to do with you. But at the end of the day, every relationship is different, and every person is different. So if you’re eagerly searching and needing some closure after a breakup, here are the ways to get closure.

1. Form a Friendship

Some people don’t believe me when I say this, but if the last 3 years of your love life only surrounded one person, and now all that is coming to a bitter end, one consideration is to stay friends. If you think about it I’m sure there are numerous people that you know who have managed to stay friends after breaking up and it’s probably one of the best ways to get closure. If you can’t think of any, here’s one couple I can think of: Elaine Benes and Jerry Seinfeld on Seinfeld remained best friends after breaking up. And although you can argue that Seinfeld is a fictional sitcom, the creators admitted to mirroring most episodes on their own life experiences. So there you have it, stay friends after breaking up and at least some closure may be achieved considering you will now have to work on building a healthy friendship instead of a toxic relationship.

Give It Time


I'm trying to get closure myself so this article was helpful. Being friends is not an option. We went from best friends, to dating for two years and now we really need to let each other go completely. It's so hard.

personally, I think that you shouldn't get back together with someone you've dated in the past. I've done it multiple times. however, I will know better now & tell myself that we broke up for a reason.
Staying friends is a terrible idea and getting back together is an even worse idea yet. Why does everyone in today's world feel the need to hold on to things? It's amazing to let go. You don't need to hold on to something or someone that hurt you.
I agree that getting back together isn't that great of an idea. It's sort of a way to avoid the situation in my opinion.

Stay friends is the worst advice ever. It gives you no time to get over romantic feelings... And get back together is just dumb.
Getting back together makes no sense. You broke up for a reason so leave it at that. Nothing good comes from breaking up and gettin back together.
