How to end a chapter?

Reading a book is easy because the chapters end themselves. Life is a little more complicated. You cannot simply end a chapter, for in order to do that you must know where the chapter begins and then where the chapter should end. But more importantly, you must know how to begin the new chapter. I have been, for the past few days, thinking of ending a chapter in my life. I wish it were that simply. Usually, I simply end a chapter it is pretty easy. Moving on with it, starting a new chapter. However, this chapter that I am trying to end now, it has been going on for quite a while. Because of the length of this chapter, I had to cut short some other chapters; ones that I would have liked to continue for a bit longer. At whatever the cost this chapter I must end. Simply because, it has become too much about me there is too much of me in  it and not enough of the characters.

I write to gain a better perspective of my thoughts, but they are not coherent, clear or even understandable for that matter. I do not know how, all I know is that I must end this chapter.

This does not mean the end of the story though, as I heard someone say to someone else "kahani abi baqi hai mere dost" ... :)

You know what, I do know something I will definitely put in the last chapter. This line...
 "It's reassuring. To know there will be a day when I will be mine. And you will be fine."
