The hip term these days for people not getting back to you is “ghosting." As in “We had a couple dates and then they ghosted me.” But this isn’t about just dating – it’s about people in all kinds of other relationships with us… professional, family, friends who don't get back to us. Heck, you yourself might be a "ghoster"?
I was long embarrassed over my painful and difficult upbringing. There was nothing healthy or exceptional about my childhood. My parents divorced when I was very young – about 3. They hated each other and by extension my father was none too fond of me and moved far away and started a new family.
