The Overated Experience

Closure, apart from being an absolute waste of time and an indulgence of the ego, is in fact a fool’s pity party. All it really serves is giving you an opportunity to indulge in something you have already tried and tested that isn’t good for you.

Perhaps, you are feeling so good about yourself now, you think they must want to kick themselves silly if they catch a glimpse of you now. All is vanity!
