We humans crave connection—it’s ingrained in us. It’s what makes us feel seen, heard and valued. Some argue that this need for connection even outweighs our primal urges for food and sex. Hmm?!
But have you ever considered what happens when we engage in what I like to call “micro-ghosting”? (I coined the term, by the way—it’s not a scientific concept).
Take Khrisna, for instance, during our Transformational Experience on Monday.
His spent his time mindlessly scrolling? That was him micro-ghosting himself.
You know the drill:
- Endless scrolling sessions,
- Avoiding real world experiences,
- Escaping from reality.
You see, our brains often perceive certain emotions—like anxiety, sadness, anger, grief, or fear—as potential threats, triggering our survival instincts.
And one of our responses is fright/freeze.
And a symptom (not the problem peeps), scrolling socials.
And that results in micro ghosting.
While assuming we’re not in any physical danger, the emotional equivalent feels just as daunting.
That’s when emotions engulf you and then you are stuck in the flight response – running away and avoiding your feelz.
Yet, avoiding feelings only amplifies them.
Dealing with emotions can be tough when we lack a strategy to tackle them head-on.
Embrace the power of transforming emotional moments into opportunities for connection wiithin yourself and even with a higher power – AKA, the divine (watch that realisation drop for Krishna in The Transformational Experience here).
Instead of micro-ghosting, start by acknowledging your own emotions.
Confront the fear (AKA Clear The Fear which we do quarterly in Maximum Growth Business Classes).
To maintain strong connections, it’s crucial to regularly check in with your own emotions.
Recognize that by avoiding emotions, you’re essentially ghosting yourself, or maybe wiser to say, you’re neglecting yourself.
