Maybe it is just me, but lately I have been surrounded by people who just leave things hanging. Whether it is responding to a FB messenger, following up on a issue they were going to get back to me on, or not closing the loop on a back and forth conversation. How do others handle this? Is it just me?
I see what you see. Incompletions everywhere. I handle this by moving on and moving with flow and ease and those who make no decision sadly lose out.
I have been finding that when folks don’t close the loop it has been important for me to close it for them. For example, if someone is supposed to “let me know about working together” and doesn’t respond, now I am reaching out and saying, “I didn’t hear back from you, so I am closing this out on my end. No need to respond.” I realize that this closure is important to me.
Yes, I also think closure is important. Leaving something hanging is making an assumption. By completing on your end, you are being clear and taking excellent care of yourself.
I had not considered that, but while it gives you closure, it may tell them how another feels about lack of action. I shall try that. Thanks for sharing. Nancy
