Rather than address their inappropriate or abusive behavior, toxic people pull away and say nothing. This is done to try and invalidate the survivor's feelings. - Southlake Christian Counseling From Shannon Thomas at http://southlakecounseling.org/
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.
