Being ghosted is brutal, especially when things seemed OK and the ghosting literally comes out of left field. I'm not sure where people got the idea that's it's alright to enter and then leave someone's life without any sort of explanation whatsoever. Nonetheless, life goes on, and a little subtle revenge is in order. It's time for Instagram captions that throw shade at that sucker who honestly doesn't deserve you.

We can't control people. How much easier would life be though, right? We can only control our reaction to the way people treat us. It's normal to feel sort of down if you felt readily invested in someone and they just left you on the back burner. But sooner or later, you have to reestablish your worth and keep going forward.

The world doesn't stop for your self-pity and neither should you. Get up, get out, and capture every golden moment you are having here on out with your camera. You're literally only a snap away from proving that you are over and done with that unreliable and unneeded human being.

Pairing a flawless Instagram picture with a witty as hell caption will not only make that lingering ghost feel remorse, but it'll make you feel incredibly better. At the end of the day, your ego may be damaged a little bit, but you're clicks away from getting your groove back. Thank goodness for social media and its ability to frame our relentlessness for the world to see. If you've ever been ghosted and are in the recovery period of the grueling process of trying to forget it, try accessorizing your glorious Instagram pic with some of this shade. Yes, it's free.
