1. You no longer feel the pain.

Being human requires us to acknowledge that we're not in control of our emotions. We are experiencing them instinctively.

2. You have grown to appreciate the experience.

Genuine closure comes from becoming an observer of your past. It comes from appreciating your experiences.

3. The past no longer defines you.

Living in the past stems from the notion that our previous experiences shape our present and future.

4. Your perspective has shifted.

A changed perspective often manifests in tangible changes in your daily life, such as the creation of new routines.

6. You've developed emotional resilience. 

Emotional resilience refers to one's ability to adapt to stressful situations and bounce back from adverse experiences.

7. You can revisit without reentering. 

When you can revisit your past chapters without reentering them, that is when you know you've genuinely closed them.
