The term “ghosting” was invented in the early 2000s. It was primarily used to describe people’s poor behavior in personal relationships. These days ghosting happens everywhere, all the time.
Ghosting is described as:
The practice of ending all communication and contact with another person without any apparent warning or justification and subsequently ignoring any attempts to reach out or communication made by said person. www.wikipedia.org
Seemingly, ghosting has become a popular method in the last few years to deal with unwanted relationships. In other words, they changed their mind about you, and your value or benefit to them.
They can’t be honest and straight up with you or take the time to explain their thoughts and emotions. Taking the honest route is often hard and uncomfortable, but it also is called “doing the correct and respectful thing.”
Pro Tip: They usually can’t explain anyway, as they knowingly tricked you into a relationship to use you. That would be hard to explain, face to face.
Choosing the cowardly route of ghosting, and blocking someone for good, without explanation, is heartbreaking and mentally distressing to the affected person.
But the “ghosting party” doesn’t care about your mental health.
Of course, people who like to play the ghosting card, are in fact, ghosts.
They have no heart or soul; they’re cowards, without backbone, or honesty and to top it off, they mostly are sad and selfish narcissists.
They don’t give a damn about how you, or how anyone feels. They rope you in, play you around and see what they can get from you, and then finally spit you out.
It’s vital to understand the paradox in play here. These personalities believe they’re the most important person in their world and therefore can treat you however they want.
99% of the time, in their mind, they haven’t wronged you.
You simply became a pest and dispensable, so that’s what they did. Dispense of you and turn off the lights.
Today, ghosting goes on in personal relationships, in business, and it even happens in families. It’s everywhere, and it’s bad if you allow it to affect your mental wellbeing.
Somewhere along the line, in their opinion, you did something wrong or behaved inappropriately, giving them the right to cut you off. But not before they’ve taken what they wanted from you.
Another definition of ghosting should be: a weak, cowardly, selfish, and insecure person with a low IQ and EQ, practicing emotional abuse.
Look through the ghosts and don’t let them get to you — move on fast.
