This Is How You Survive The Narcissist’s Silent Treatment (without Completely Losing Yourself)

The only way to take back the power here is to refuse to respond. You just go on about your life as though he isn’t there, or you do whatever you’d normally do and you blatantly ignore his behavior, no matter how pissed off he gets.

That means:

  • Do not send him texts trying to reason with him.
  • Do not post whiney crap on your Facebook page for all to see.
  • Do not allow him to know that he is affecting you in any way at all.
  • Do not give him what he wants when he behaves this way.

When he realizes he’s not breaking your heart, he’ll try something new. And while this will not solve your narcissist problem, it will stop him from enacting the silent treatment for long.

Narcissists love using the Silent Treatment as a cruel punishment and the drastic effect of this method of passive-aggressive control is an absolute torture.

Silent Treatment conveys contempt, disapproval, and displeasure. Narcissists frequently use this tactic when you ask them for clarification about something, especially when they have done wrong. This helps them to transfer the blame game to you and allows them to avoid taking any responsibility for their wrong actions, thereby refuting your feelings.

Thank you for always taking and never giving. For always asking for my love and understanding and yet never being emotionally available for me.
