“When a person cuts off all communication with their friends or the person they're dating, with zero warning or notice beforehand. You'll mostly see them avoiding friend's phone calls, social media, and avoiding them in public,” Urban Dictionary.
Being ghosted falls on the top 10 list of most shitty things you can do to someone and let’s just say it’s time to leave the ghosting behind in 2021.
“Ghosting” or cutting all communication ties with anyone in your life is typically a sign of an inability to effectively communicate clear boundaries and needs usually resulting in one of more people getting hurt, and if you just so happened to be at the end of being someone’s ghost victim, you’ve surely come to the right place.
For starters, if you have or are currently experiencing a ghosting situation, just know that it has absolutely nothing to do with you. A lot of what we can't see lies beneath the surface, and the actions that others display really has to do with their own insecurities and ability to handle conflict effectively.
And though being ghosted sucks to the core, there are in fact ways you can provide your own closure and move on from the confusion surrounding a relationship, friendship, or connection with a family member.
Do not take it personally
Write a letter that will never be seen
Talk to your therapist
Don't stalk, force, or manipulate the situation
Just know that there are others who will give you the communication you deserve
Through these five tactics, you can put yourself on the path to moving on from unfulfilling situations and let go completely. And although ghosting is really not cool, it’s okay to know that it has absolutely nothing to do with you and has everything to do with unhealed trauma and trust issues on their end. By accepting outcomes for what they are rather than trying to change them as well, you will have saved yourself from further suffering by creating the space to attract the right people who are meant for you.
