My Partner Gives Me The Silent Treatment Every Time We Argue

In the video above I discuss the topic: Why Does My Partner Give Me The Silent Treatment After We Argue?

Is this any way to have a relationship where you are always having to walk on eggshells because your partner doesn’t know how to or want to communicate, and just shuts down?

Are you now afraid to have an opinion for fear of them closing off to you once again?

Your partner needs to figure out why they treat you in this controlling manner and you need to have some boundaries in what you allow in your relationships and all aspects of your life.

Communication is the number 1 priority of any relationship and if there is a problem with how you converse with each other, it will only cause further breakdown in the partnership. Who wants to come home to confrontation or even worse; a cold shoulder for days on end.

Just because they don’t like or agree with something you say is no excuse to punish you with this repetitive silent treatment. It’s time to get to the bottom of it, or move on from the partnership before it takes a permanent toll on your self esteem.

Your relationship needs to be on a loving and reciprocated path where you have nothing but respect for each other and there are no push/pull emotional games!

I love hearing from you & will always take time to answer you back. Please leave your comments below!

  1. Thank you for this video. It’s absolutely abuse. Shutting down during arguments and refusing to talk is a form of emotional abuse which affects self-worth and self-esteem.

Thank you for visiting Sybersue! Your comments and topic ideas are always appreciated!
