A phrase that the older generation often insists on is “communication is key,” but Gen Z feels the exact opposite, sticking to “ghosting.”

The Urban Dictionary defines ghosting as “the act of abruptly stopping all communication with someone who is dating the object but no longer wishes to date. The purpose of this is to hope that the ghost just “gets a cue” and leaves the object alone, not the object simply tell them he/she is no longer interested.”

“Sneaky” has become a buzzword on social media platforms over whether the act was clearly communicated or cowardly. The term ghosting on Twitter has often been debated on both sides of the debate on Twitter.

One side of the argument despised the art of “ghosting”, feeling it was a form of manipulation and selfishness. The other side of the debate agrees to use “ghosting” to protect a person’s mental health. Twitter users on both sides of the argument have made the right point, but the question remains, is it healthy to ghost someone?

The U.S. National Library of Medicine says: “The quality of our intimate relationships is the greatest predictor of longevity and happiness. High-quality intimate relationships are associated with fewer mental health problems and better subjective well-being. Conversely, low-quality intimate relationships Breakups are often associated with lower levels of well-being, such as anger, sadness, psychological distress and depression.”

Some social media users emphasized that they often ghost someone rather than a different way of communicating.

“Ghosting those who never prioritized you >>.” the Twitter user said.

“Sneak everyone to when you’re not in a good mood,” Twitter user Qvrgss said.

While some social media users tend to ‘ghost’ people in their lives, others are outraged at the manipulative glorification after a viral video showed a woman being left at an altar by her groom despite being left at the altar still welcome. Commenters were furious that ‘ghost supporters’ tried to blame the bride for the groom’s disappearance on their wedding day.

Twitter user Jd occasionally retweeted the viral video, saying, “Where’s the guy who ‘ghosting is clear communication’ now? Tell me that’s not the most manipulative and narcissistic thing you can do to someone you claim to care about. things.”

Individuals sabotage relationships by forcing their loved ones out of their lives without notice. Ghosting behavior is an unhealthy communication skill that shouldn’t be something people practice in relationships. Long-term relationships will deteriorate if problems are not brought up and seep into new connections.

Over time, people should slowly stop playing active people in their lives. Due to the long-term effects on the health of others, “ghosting” should become a non-existent form of communication for a new generation.
