Are you one of those people who likes things neatly tied up in perfectly fitting boxes?
That’s how I used to be.
Ambiguity was a horrifying thought.
Uncertainty used to make me uncomfortable.
I’ve always been a big believer in “what you see is what you get.”
Now that I’m past midlife, though, I see things differently.
It’s not always a good idea to force a conclusion before its time. As I used to do.
I’d do it just to get “closure.”
How many times have we heard the phrase, “I need closure.”
I see now that “closure” is mostly a search for solid ground.
Have you ever exercised power just to rid yourself of ambiguity and uncertainty?
Now that I’m past midlife, I see that closure isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
The thing about leaving things open is that it leaves room for what’s meant to be to happen.
Because I do believe in “meant to be.”
I know you’ve got stories about this and I’d love to hear them in the Comments section below.
