5 Signs You Are Being Ghosted and How to Deal With It
Lack of Communication: If someone you were previously in contact with suddenly stops responding to your messages, calls, or emails, it could be a sign that they’re ghosting you.
Plans Canceled Repeatedly: If they continuously cancel plans with you without giving a proper explanation, they may be avoiding you.
No Response to Attempts to Reach Out: If you reach out to the person multiple times and receive no response, it could indicate that they’re intentionally avoiding you.
Their Social Media Presence Drops: If they stop liking or commenting on your posts, or if they become less active on social media altogether, it could be a sign that they’re ghosting you.
Avoiding In-Person Interactions: If they suddenly avoid in-person interactions with you, such as not showing up for a scheduled meeting, it could indicate that they’re trying to end the relationship by ghosting you.
Ghosted? Here’s how to recover
People “ghost” or suddenly stop responding to communication in relationships for various reasons, such as fear of confrontation, lack of interest, or being overwhelmed by personal issues. Being ghosted can be hurtful, and it’s normal to feel a range of emotions such as confusion, anger, and sadness. To handle being ghosted, it can be helpful to:
Allow yourself to process your emotions: Acknowledge your feelings and give yourself time to heal.
Reach out to trusted friends and family: Talking to someone you trust can help you feel less isolated and provide a different perspective.
Try to understand the situation: If possible, try to gain insight into why the person may have chosen to ghost you. Keep in mind, however, that you may never get a clear answer.
Focus on self-care: Engage in activities that bring you joy and help you feel good about yourself.
Consider moving on: Sometimes, the best way to heal from being ghosted is to let go and move forward.
Remember, being ghosted does not reflect your worth as a person and there are plenty of opportunities for new, healthy relationships in the future.
