The Emotional and Psychological Impacts of Ghosting.
Welcome to another episode of One Hot Mess with Brittany! In today's episode, we dive deep into the emotional and psychological impacts of ghosting. We'll discuss why people choose to ghost, the feelings it evokes in both the ghoster and the ghostee and the broader implications of this phenomenon in our personal and professional lives. Drawing on a recent study, we explore the various reasons people ghost, from incompatibility to avoiding confrontation, and how these actions leave those on the receiving end in distress and feeling punished. Brittany also touches on the new terms of non-committal behaviors such as breadcrumbing, submarining, and orbiting, explaining how these actions are becoming increasingly normalized. Learn about the emotional aftermath for ghosters, including feelings of relief, guilt, and sometimes complete detachment. Understand why ghosting deprives individuals of closure, leading to long-lasting emotional pain. Brittany shares insights on how these behaviors affect our mental health and offers advice on coping and maintaining your integrity in the face of disrespectful actions. Whether you've been ghosted or are trying to understand why someone might disappear without a trace, this episode is packed with valuable information and practical tips. Tune in to gain a deeper understanding of ghosting and its ripple effects on our relationships and well-being. Don't forget to hit the follow button and share One Hot Mess with a friend.
