Closing the event
The final step involves something known as “psychological closure”—a sort of mental marker that symbolizes that the painful event is now closed, at least as far as you are concerned.
Achieving closure will make it easier for you to move on. One way to achieve psychological closure is to print out your letter, seal it in an envelope and then either burn it or drop it in the trash. And as you are doing this, tell yourself, “With this act, I consider this incident closed.”
As tacky as this may sound, findings show that psychological closure helps you move on by stopping you from dwelling on past events.
