Why The Silent Treatment Is Bad

Do you feel guilty about using the silent treatment?


Published:

In this episode of The Sex Talk, Mou and Jenoa discuss the silent treatment which may occur in relationships during disagreements but is harmful, emotionally abusive, deeply psychologically damaging and most of all an ineffective tool to resolve disputes in relationships. Silence is violence, and feels like abandonment. We all have abandonment issues and have to learn to deal with impermanence in healthy ways. Also discussed are healthy ways to take time-outs when you need one as opposed to shutting your partner out.
