If a narcissist sees that they are not getting their desired response, this particular period of silence is likely to come to an end.
However, bear in mind that if a narcissist believes this particular form of manipulation isn’t effective as far as you are concerned, they may switch to some other manipulative tactic.
Respect yourself enough to know that someone who loves you would never treat you in such a contemptuous manner. People who love you don’t withhold love, they give it. People who love you have your back. They don’t stab you in it.
When someone gives you the silent treatment, return the favour, walk away, close the door and lock it behind you.
