Should you ghost exit the party?
Ever been in the middle of a rave and all of a sudden you’re just not feeling it? For whatever reason you’ve become detached and you just don’t want to be there anymore. Nothing will change your mind.
At this stage you can either try to stick it out and make yourself more unhappy, or you can leave. Or can you? Sometimes peer pressure will keep you somewhere you don’t want to be, which is when you have to decide, “Should I stay or should I ghost?”.
SELF-CARE IS PARAMOUNT
There is absolutely no reason why you should have to push yourself if you’re not feeling it, always remember that. Ghosting is an act of self-care, which bestows you with the power to exit a situation without the pressure to explain why.
FREE UP TIME AND ENERGY
If you’re not feeling good, saying goodbye, and having to tell everyone why you’re leaving, will take up extra time and energy when you could be home recuperating from your difficult experience. If you ghost, you avoid this.
KEEP THE VIBES HIGH
Though it feels like a thoughtful thing to do, announcing your departure can often bum people out. So, it’s actually more considerate to leave without saying anything, so you don’t make a scene or affect how everyone else feels.
When someone decides to leave the rave earlier than everyone else, there can be an instant descent into peer pressure. More often than not, your mates will do their utmost to convince you to stay. By leaving without a goodbye, you take ownership of your decision and bypass the inevitable peer pressure.
ACT NOW, EXPLAIN LATER
Making your departure doesn’t actually require an explanation, you don’t owe anyone anything. So make your dash for the exit whenever you feel the need. Best practice though, is to message at least one of your friends once you’re out, to let them know. Otherwise, your disappearance could end up turning into a missing person’s case.
