    Unfortunately, social media and other forms of “trendy” communication has made it so impersonal that we don’t see people as human; we see them as objects. Yet, when we experience our person or feelings being dismissed or disrespected, we want others to see the human in us. I don’t partake in social media for various reasons. But, primarily because it’s just not my preference for socializing or communicating. I believe in human to human contact and I don’t believe in wasting vital energy engaging in empty chatter.

    Ghosting, zombieing, and benching are all results of poor communication skills. It sounds cute and trendy, but it’s really a dysfunctional way of relating to people. These so-called “new” school terms are sending a message to our youngsters that its ok to treat people as if they are meaningless and disposable. So, you don’t have to respect them or their feelings; you can say whatever you want, however you want, or — you just don’t have to say anything at all. I don’t condone it. It’s not how I communicate. Nor, would I want my children to communicate in that manner.
