Ghosting a Loved One

What is “Ghosting”?

My personal uncensored definition of “Ghosting” is leaving someone in the dark, or, never speaking to someone again, without a verbal reason why.

Sounds fucked up, doesn’t it?

It is, and to be honest, I hate being ghosted. In some cases, it can be heartbreaking.

Regretfully, I’ve ghosted three people on the same exact day.

I regret not speaking up for myself, and working through a problem; instead I shut down, and I ran away from an issue rather than tackling it. Ever since that day, the people I’ve ghosted haven’t said a word to me. In fact, they never chased me for an answer. It makes me wonder if I wanted to be chased, and maybe that’s why I ghosted?

I believe most of us like to feel wanted. Doesn’t it make us feel like we’re worthy when someone chases us (emotionally; not physically)?

I miss these people immensely. I think about them every single day, and I have dreams of seeing them again. In my dreams, they are crying and so am I. I just had a dream about one of the three people last night- hence why I am writing this. I wonder if I hurt them? Did they not care to see me go? Three years later, I have so many questions. Do they?

Have you ever been ghosted/ or ghosted someone?

      1. That’s completely understandable. It’s most important that when you do it, you’re ready. But acknowledging these feelings first is the right step. Sending lots of love!

      1. Yea, I do. But im afraid to act on it. I’m very fearful of rejection, and looking stupid. I think its best we aren’t friends anymore. The guilt is what is driving me crazy.
