Getting Over it and Moving On

We’ve all had those experiences where the relationship just didn’t work out. In most cases there is always one that wants to stay and one that wants to go away. So how do you get past those feelings from the past? Well the answer might be inside an envelope.

In four separate experiments, the researchers found the physical act of enclosing materials related to an unpleasant experience — such as a written recollection about it — improved people’s negative feelings toward the event and created psychological closure. Enclosing materials unrelated to the experience did not work as well, the researchers found.

What is the old saying, “tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all”? It still hurts, but life does in fact still go on quite nicely.
