Culture Conversation: STAFF PICK


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.

"Original Post Above"

The post refers to "Ghosting"as emotional abuse. Our staff has differing opinions on the matter.

Because, ghosting can be a form of protecting your peace. What do you do when someone no longer serves your well being? Or 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 their 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 confused? Do they actually understand why you don't want to talk anymore? Or maintain any kind of contact?

We see situations like this occur often in life. Whether it's a significant other, friend, or even family member. What are your thoughts? We'd love to have a healthy conversation on this!

Leave your opinion in the comments below. (Keep it classy!)

    One of my favorite sayings, " No response is a response". You have to move on your life can not stop because of the actions of someone else.

    I am a person that will ghost if the person has energy that does not coincide with mine in a positive way. Many ppl say they want the best for you when they really want to see you fail. You have to know when to walk away for your own peace and happiness. Being one with yourself. Protect it at all costs.

    I think that ignoring someone can be rude but it also be a safety measure. Why are you ignoring them? Are you being mean or do they mean you harm? It depends on the motive.
