Are you the type of partner to give your significant other the silent treatment? Well, looks like this method might cause more damage than good…
According to Reader’s Digest Magazine, giving your partner the silent treatment can be considered as a form of emotional abuse. It can be disrespectful, demeaning, and just plain old harsh. Experts say it is always better to fix the issue constructively, before giving someone the cold shoulder.
“Building these walls between you and your partner will inevitably break down your relationship. [...] It’s not just how we fight, but how we make up after the fight, that signals the health of the relationship.”
No matter how hard the conversations can be, communication really is the key to a healthy relationship.
