Ghosting the Ghosted

“No reason to stay is a good reason to go.”

I never will understand the cowardness behind ghosting. For those who do not know what the term means, it is simply vanishing from someone you are involved with, no explanation, no phone call, no goodbye. I don’t know why this is such a common practice. It is not hard to say “I’m sorry, but I don’t think you and I are a good match.” When did we find okay to attack and demean others online, but yet are too terrified to just say those simple words without hiding behind a cloak of silence and your keyboard.

But on occasion I’ve felt like the ghoster, not in a relationship, but in my everyday life. I up and leave and have to come to the point where I will not tell many people prior to the trip. This is my dream, and I acknowledge I do not have the support I thought I would. I’m looked at differently because I am single with no prospects of marriage and have no children, an oddity in the area I live. I find myself asking why do I stay?  So, I am finally creating the life I imagined, many may see this as ghosting my life, but it’s time. By this time in 2017, if all goes to plan, I will be preparing to move overseas.
