Your Letter:

Dear [Me/Fellow Closure – Seeker],

I know I can’t get it out of my mind that I once had a [respectable job/spouse/nice car/unshakable sense of safety] and now I need someone to restore my faith in life and myself. I also know that life [immensely sucks] and I’ve done nothing to deserve this. If I can’t [move to a better universe/get plastic surgery/find a mystic guru], I will try to accept that I can’t protect myself from major shit and learn to live with whatever bad feelings that leaves in my [head/gut/bones]. If I need closure, I’ll get a zip tie.
