How to Get Over a Breakup When You Don’t Have Closure
http://blossomtips.com/how-to-get-over-a-breakup-no-relationship-closure/
Knowing how to get over a breakup isn’t simple – and it’s even more difficult when you don’t have closure in your relationship. These tips are inspired by a reader who can’t accept that her relationship is over because she and her ex didn’t have closure.

The most important thing to remember about getting over a breakup is that you’ll never truly be “over it.” You lose a piece of your heart when you lose someone you love. But, this doesn’t mean you’ll never be happy again…it just means your heart has been bruised, and you need to re-learn how to open yourself to loving fully and deeply again.
