in inter-personal relationships
comprises a mythical
state, like Nirvana
, wherein happiness
and light reign and any previous dispute[?]
or misunderstanding gets papered over or forgotten -- at least from the viewpoint of the closure-seeker (self-styled and sometimes known technically as the "victim").
The official theological or religious category, forgiveness, has fewer extreme overtones and greater psychological flexibility.
