Do Women Connect their worth to Relationships?
Lets Talk About it...
This week on social media we stumbled upon some really good culture conversation topics. Particularly this post on "Ghosting". Ghosting is a colloquial term used to describe the practice of ceasing all communication and contact with a partner, friend, or similar individual without any apparent warning or justification and subsequently ignoring any attempts to reach out or communicate made by said partner, friend, or individual.
The post circling the office refers to "Ghosting" as emotional abuse. Our staff has differing opinions on the matter.
First, because ghosting can be a form of protecting your peace. What do you do when someone no longer serves your well being?
Second, when you no longer wish to continue contact? What if you have already tried explaining to the person that you don't like their energy or are better off without them?
At that point is ignoring text messages, phone calls, etc. a form of emotional abuse? Are you the abuser or are you protecting yourself?
On the other hand what if the person you are actively ignoring is confused? Do they actually understand why you don't want to talk anymore? Or maintain any kind of contact?
The tricky park is how you feel when someone ghosts you. When you think you and your significant other, friend, or family and on the same page then poof, radio silence. Do you feel low? Like there is something wrong with you?
We see situations like this occur often in life. What are your thoughts? We'd love to have a healthy conversation on this!
