Coming to terms with a relationship that didn't work out isn't always easy. Depending on how things ended, it can take quite a while to move on from heartbreak, and that's OK. Thankfully, if you have the opportunity to have a conversation, knowing the right questions to ask your ex about your breakup can be a helpful way to find closure. Even though getting to the root of the issues you faced may be painful,the clarity gleaned from having an honest dialogue can be a helpful step in the healing process. According to behavior and relationship expert Dr. Patrick Wanis, Ph.D.,getting clarity aboutany lingering questions can be an integral part of closure.
"Closure is when you've expressed all of your thoughts and feelings about the relationship, you've received all of the answers to your questions, and have an enlightened perspective on the relationship — that means you learned something about the relationship and you learned something about yourself," Dr. Wanis previously told Elite Daily. Although not every breakup is going to end on terms that allow you to have this conversation, if you and your ex are on speaking terms, here are some questions that may help you figure out what went wrong.
