Silent Treatment (Worst Form Of Emotional Abuse)

Well said. The key is to remember that no one holds your life line…and therefore you can let go. Easier said than done, I know.

It can’t be done. By the way, I do believe in second chances…depending on the circumstances; but too many shame on us!

The truth is, they are far worse at doling out abuse than the physical abuser. Silent treatment is a form of banishing someone from the abuser’s existence without the benefit of closure or a good-bye or a chance at reconciliation.
