Stone-cold silence is often accompanied by total denial over any problem, which further infuriates the other person.

Sometimes the silent treatment is a ‘mild’ one where the person emotionally cuts off from the partner but is not totally silent.

  1. Don’t Isolate: Maintain healthy relationships with family and friends to avoid feelings of loneliness.
  2. Hobbies: Engage in reading books or doing art, which can help us stay stable and strong, and can act as an outlet for our feelings.
