Day 15 of 365- Tonight We Wont Be Recording A Video; But Trust We Are Communicating… I Wanted To Share This With You All….
This is one of the most common ways to end a relationship.
This is the MOST powerful form of communication-
THINK ABOUT IT!
The silent treatment says you’ve quit on the relationship. You’ve essentially created a defensive posture that allows nothing in or out. You are no longer willing to work on resolving any conflict.
It’s punishing, demeaning, and shaming. One communication
expert describes the silent treatment as “the violence of silence.”
If you find yourself giving your spouse the silent treatment, this response typically comes from a place where the conflict has become so overwhelming, your emotional self has shut down.
While there is definitely a time to walk away for a moment and
cool down, doing so cannot be to punish your partner or stop
them from being heard.
