The Deafening Brutality of the Narcissist’s Silent Treatment - By Kim Saeed

Specifically, don’t send pleading text messages or lengthy emails asking them to respond to you or explain how much they’re hurting you.  From their perspective, it proves to them that they are highly important, even more important than you are to yourself. Implementing NC during the silent treatment would put you back into a place of power because when they prance back onto the scene believing you’ll fall to their feet, they’ll encounter nothing but the sound of crickets…

  1. A relationship with a narcissist is a waste of time and energy. I am actually elated when my narcissist friend does not text me because that is less time I spend reading or listening to their over rated self induldged ego BS.

  2. If anything, the years of silence and being pushed away only to talk on social media like this? Not even answering my emails or talking to me when I requested to directly talk on the phone.. Making communication purposefully difficult? That is Narcissistic Silent Treatment.
    Either talk to me in real life or go away.

  3. Some people who cant decide if they want to be in your life or not need to be cut out of your life.
    Its not the silent treatment to simply stop talking to someone and keep them out of your life because they have caused you nothing but confusion.
    If a person actually wants to be in my life, he has my phone number and my email address.
