Being ghosted by a BFF is both a confusing and painful experience. The sudden silence and lack of closure leave you feeling hurt and rejected.

And if you are a crybaby like me, you’ll spend days or even weeks crying and questioning everything you thought you knew about your friendship. 

But before you jump to conclusions or send a frantic “wyd??” text, take a deep breath and consider these 5 secrets to decode the silence and potentially reconnect.

1. Acknowledge the Pain

First and foremost, allow yourself to feel the sting of the situation. Don’t try to brush it off or pretend you’re okay when you know you’re not. 

Allow yourself to feel your emotions, whether it’s sadness, anger, or confusion. And like I’ve said before, cry if you are a fellow crybaby. Bottling up your feelings will only prolong the healing process.

2. Consider the Context

While ghosting is never okay, it’s helpful to try to understand the potential context behind your friend’s actions. Have there been any recent disagreements or tensions in the friendship? 

Has your friend been going through a difficult time lately? While not an excuse for their behavior, understanding the bigger picture might offer some insight.

3. Communicate Directly (if Possible)

After you’ve had some time to process your emotions, reach out to your friend directly with a calm and understanding tone. Send a text, email, or leave a voicemail expressing your concern about the sudden silence. 

Avoid accusatory language or making assumptions about their reasons for ghosting. Let them know you miss them and would appreciate an explanation for their behavior. However, be prepared for the possibility that you may not receive a response.

4. Respect Their Boundaries

If your attempts to reach out are met with silence, respect your friend’s boundaries, even if it’s difficult. Don’t bombard them with messages or calls, as this could come across as pushy or disrespectful. 

Give them the space they might need, even if it means letting go of the friendship for now.

5. Focus on Yourself

You can’t control someone else’s actions, but you can control your own. Though the experience is challenging, it can also be an opportunity for personal growth. Sit down, talk to yourself (I do that quite a lot), and choose to be your own BFF.

Focus on your well-being, lean on the support systems of family and other loved ones, and engage in activities that bring you joy and fulfillment

True friendships are built on mutual respect and understanding. If this friendship is meant to be, it will find its way back, but don’t be afraid to move forward and create new connections with people who value your presence. 

Most importantly, don’t ever define your self-worth by the actions of others.

In Conclusion,

Healing takes time and every situation is unique. Be patient with yourself and the process. Be patient, be kind to yourself, and prioritize your own well-being throughout this process. 

If you’re struggling to cope or need additional support, consider seeking professional help from a therapist or counselor.

I hope this article helps you navigate the difficult situation of being ghosted by the people you love. I hope you find peace and clarity moving forward.
