Navigating the Heartache of Twin Flame Ghosting
The twin flame connection is a powerful and mysterious one. However, the journey to find and be with our twin flame is not always an easy one. One of the most difficult stages of the twin flame journey is when one twin flame “ghosts” the other. In this article, we will explore what is the difference between ghosting and silent treatment, the reasons why some twin flames may ghost, the effects of this on the twin flame relationship, and what you can do if you find yourself in this difficult situation.
What is ghosting and how is it different from silent treatment?
Ghosting is a term used to describe the act of ending a relationship or ending communication with someone without any explanation or warning. It is often associated with dating, but can also occur in friendships or other types of relationships. Ghosting can be done through various forms of communication such as text, email, social media or phone calls. The person who is ghosted is left confused and often hurt, as they may not understand why the other person has ended the relationship or communication without explanation.
Silent treatment, on the other hand, is when someone chooses to stop communicating with someone else as a form of punishment or manipulation. Unlike ghosting, the person who is giving the silent treatment is still present in the relationship or interaction but they refuse to engage in communication. Unlike ghosting, the person who is giving the silent treatment usually has an intention behind it, they might want to express their anger, disappointment or hurt feelings, or they might want the other person to understand that they are not happy with the situation.
In summary, when a twin flame ghosts you, it is a way to end the relationship or communication abruptly and without warning or explanation, while if they give you the silent treatment it might be a way to communicate dissatisfaction or even to manipulate you. For instance, this is a very common technique used by narcissists and if you find yourself in this situation, then you are probably not in a relationship with a twin flame but with a karmic partner.
Why do some Twin Flames ghost:
Twin flames will most likely ghost during the “runner and chaser” stage, where one twin flame runs away from the relationship (the twin flame runner), while the other chases after them (the twin flame chaser). This is one of the most painful twin flame stages, and it is often the reason why some twin flames decide to ghost. They may feel overwhelmed by the intense emotions of the journey and may need to take a step back in order to process their feelings. Additionally, they may be going through their own personal struggles that make it difficult for them to be in the relationship.
There can be many other reasons why some twin flames choose to ghost, including:
- Fear of confrontation: Some twin flames may find it difficult to have difficult conversations or to express their feelings, so they may choose to ghost as a way to avoid dealing with the situation head-on. They may not know how to communicate their feelings or how to handle conflicts in a healthy way.
- Insecurity: Some twins may ghost because they feel insecure about their own feelings because of the intensity of the connection which feels unusual.
- Lack of emotional maturity: Ghosting can be a sign of an emotionally immature person who is not yet capable of handling the complexities of relationships and still has a lot of personal development work to do. Lack of commitment: Some twins may believe at the time that they are not looking for a serious relationship and may ghost when they feel like things are getting too serious or intense.
- Self-protection: Some twin flames may ghost as a way to protect themselves from getting hurt. They may have been hurt in the past and may be reluctant to open themselves up to the possibility of getting hurt again.
- Personal issues: Some others may ghost due to personal issues such as mental health problems, trauma or addiction that may prevent them from being present in the relationship.
Every twin flame will have their own reasons and motivations for the actions they take, and ghosting is not always a deliberate choice, as they may be struggling with their own personal and immaturity issues that they are not even aware of.
The Pain of being ghosted by a twin flame:
When a twin flame ghosts you, it can be incredibly painful. You may feel a sense of rejection and abandonment, and it can be difficult to understand why they would choose to walk away from the relationship. The pain of being ghosted can be even worse when you are in the “runner and chaser” stage of the twin flame journey, as you may feel like you are the only one putting in effort to make the relationship work.
Some of the most common feelings that may arise include:
- Rejection: Being ghosted can make you feel rejected and unwanted. You may question what you did wrong or if you are not good enough.
- Confusion: Being ghosted can be confusing as you may not understand why your twin ended the relationship or communication without explanation. This can leave you feeling uncertain about what happened and what the future holds.
- Hurt: Being ghosted can be hurtful as it can make you feel like you were not important enough for your twin flame to have an honest conversation with. The twin flame longing can also be extremely painful.
- Abandonment: Being ghosted can make you feel abandoned and alone.You may feel like you were not a priority to them and that you were easily disposable.
- Insecurity: Being ghosted can make you question your own self-worth and make you doubt your own abilities to form healthy relationships in the future.
- Anger: Being ghosted can make you feel angry and resentful towards your twin flame, as you feel like you were not treated with respect and kindness.
- Loneliness: Being ghosted can make you feel lonely and isolated as if you have lost a connection with someone very special. These feelings can be very intense and overwhelming, and it’s important for you to take time to process and understand what you are feeling and seek support if necessary.
What to do when your Twin Flame ghosts you:
When your twin flame ghosts, it is essential to heal the wounds of the twin flame relationship. Start by taking the time to process your feelings and to focus on self-care. This can include activities such as journaling, meditation, gratitude practices and spending time with loved ones. It’s also important to set boundaries as you deserve to be treated in a respectful way.
Additionally, please remember that being ghosted by your twin flame is not a reflection of your worth or value as a person. Your twin flame’s decision to ghost you is a reflection of their own issues and struggles, not yours. It’s essential to practice self-compassion and to remind yourself that you deserve to be treated with kindness.
Another helpful step can be to seek out support from others, whether that be friends, family, or a therapist. Talking about your feelings and getting a different perspective can be incredibly helpful in processing the pain and confusion of being ghosted.
It’s also important to take some time to focus on yourself, your own needs, and your own journey. Engage in activities that bring you joy, work on personal growth, and focus on building a strong sense of self-love. Remember that you are enough, and that you deserve to be in a healthy and loving relationship.
Chances of Regret and Comeback:
It is possible that your twin flame may regret ghosting you and may choose to come back into your life. However, you need to remind yourself that twin flames have free will and that not all twin flames will come back together. Keep in mind that twin flames are here with different twin flame missions to fulfill and that it is important to focus on your own journey, rather than waiting for your twin flame to return.
Let go of any expectations or attachments to the outcome of the relationship. After all, this is one of the best steps you can take towards twin flame reunion anyway.
In the end, navigating the twin flame journey can be incredibly challenging, especially when one twin flame ghosts the other. Therefore, working on self-love and setting boundaries is essential.
Additionally, it is important to respect your twin flame’s journey, even if it takes them away from you. Always keep in mind that twin flames are here with different missions to fulfill, and focus on your own beautiful journey.
