Silent Treatment A preferred weapon of Narcissists; a passive-aggressive form of emotional abuse in which displeasure, disapproval, and contempt are exhibited through nonverbal gestures, such as glaring, while maintaining verbal silence.
When someone walks away after you stand up for yourself, and you don't hear from them for days or weeks. That is not normal. In fact, it's abuse. It's emotional neglect, they obviously don't generally care for you... Please understand that's not real love at all… you're not a door mat to be walked on, your a friend, partner or spouse & deserve better treatment.
The Narcissist's Silent Treatment - my ex did this after dumping me out of the blue and other times before that. My mother had a stroke 2 days after the ex dumped me. The ex, who claimed I had been the love of her life gave me the silent treatment while I was grieving my mother and needed a friend to talk to. So cruel.
