Why People Ghost

So, why do people ghost? If only people were honest and they would let you know exactly how they feel, rather than mess around with your emotions. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. When people ghost you, don’t take it to heart. At the end of the day, it’s their problem and you can’t impress everyone. You have so many qualities that someone will love.

You have a whole life to lead without worrying about someone else. Life is too short. There are loads of people out there that will treat you right, and treat you the way you deserve to be treated. But, in case you are wondering, here are the reasons and logic behind ghosting.

In this day and age, ghosting has become a common thing. Is it right? Probably not. But I will be the first to admit I have done it before. I’m not going to give you a sugar coated answer. I will tell you like it is. Ghosting is when someone cuts all communication with another person. One of the main reasons why people do this, is because they want to avoid confrontation, they are afraid how you will react if they told you what is going on.

First of all I want to say, don’t worry. Worrying about every move this person makes is pointless. From experience, I can tell you that being in the wrong relationship is worse than being single. You feel lonelier than you ever could as a single person. You need to find the person who puts you first, who doesn’t require you constantly thinking about whether they are thinking about you. The truth is, if this person really cared for you, they would call and you wouldn't be worrying. There is a slight chance that they are caught up in everyday life or may be going through some kind of stress. However, if they were interested in getting to know you or pursuing something, they would at least send a small text to say they are thinking about you. Now, there is also a chance you may be overthinking this, especially if this person hasn’t text for a couple hours, something may have come up and this can be excused. When people are busy, they tend to stay off their phones and concentrate on the moment. So go and enjoy your life, and they will get back to you when they are free. However, if it has been days or even weeks. This person doesn’t see your value enough and it’s time to stop worrying about them and find someone who cares enough to send you a text.

Whatever the reason is that this person ghosted you doesn’t really matter. The fact is that this person isn’t your person. Your person will fight for you, your person will look after you, this person would send you a quick text even if they are busy to show they are thinking about you. So don’t stress about someone who isn’t stressing over you. You deserve better. You can’t please everyone, but to someone you will be perfect. Wait for that someone, don’t settle for any less. Go and enjoy life in the meantime and be happy. Your person will come when you least expect it. You deserve to be loved for all that you are.
