Have you ever thought that being ghosted was the worst thing you could go through? The truth is that it is. Being ghosted can be extremely painful. It may appear that everything that has ever mattered in your life is crumbling around you, but the best thing you can do for yourself is to move on. Yes, proceed. It is difficult to let go, but it is necessary. Here are some tips to help you deal with being ghosted.
So, exactly what is ghosting?
Have you ever been so engrossed in a relationship that you constantly texted, FaceTimed, and shared pictures? Everything appeared to be going swimmingly until the other person simply stopped responding or ignored your attempts to reach out. Even though you don’t hear from them anymore, they are still active on their social media posts. Ghosting can be harmful.
It leaves you wondering if something is wrong with you. Another reason ghosting hurts is that it is usually someone with whom you have developed an emotional or meaningful connection.
It has nothing to do with you.
When someone ghosts you, it reveals a great deal about who they are and where they are in life. People ghost for a variety of reasons, one of which is to avoid confrontation.
They are afraid of hurting the other person’s feelings if they tell the truth. You must understand that nothing you did or did not do could have caused their actions.
It’s a blessing.
Ghosting is an early indication that the other person was not right for you. It is preferable to realize this early in a relationship rather than later when you have already formed a strong bond. Recognize it for what it is: a gift and accept it.
Accepting it as a gift means you’re no longer trying to justify your actions.
Quit texting them.
Do not spend the entire night sending them texts that they will never respond to. Cut off all connections because if you don’t, you’ll feel stupid when they don’t return your attention.
Rather than sitting around waiting for a notification, the best thing to do is to communicate and let them know you are letting go, and that it was not your fault, and that you let it go. Do not wait around for them to get back to you, because they chose to cut communication with you. It will hurt more when you wait for a person who will dump you anyway.
Acknowledge your feelings
Being ghosted can be extremely hurtful, and it is natural to grieve the loss of the relationship or the potential one. Acknowledge your feelings and use this time to set better boundaries in terms of what you will accept in any relationship and what may be a deal-breaker. Make sure that you are applying the lessons you have learned in your life.
Connect with other people.
Believe that you have much more love to share and believe that you will receive it from the right person. Many people are ready to love you, and treat you like you deserve. Holding on to someone who is showing you that they can not commit to loving you will block you from connecting to other people that really care. Allow yourself to heal and move on to the next stage in life.
