Own it all. By that I mean, acknowledge _everything_ about what broke your heart. Don’t cherrypick. I had a relationship with someone go bad, and it tore me up for a long time until I did this astonishingly simple thing: I admitted to myself what was good about the person, rather than concentrate only on what was bad.
I couldn’t get closure by only accepting how I felt about 90 percent of the person. When I finally included how I felt about the 10 percent of the person that was sexy, enjoyable, likable, and so on, the weight lifted. I held myself back from fixing the broken heart because deep inside, I knew that I was making a lie of omission about how I’d felt.
The person was toxic for me, but until I acknowledged the part that had been good, I couldn’t react with full honesty and strength.
