In a relationship, a partner uses ‘the silent treatment’ on the other to make them feel hurt, punished and alienated, manipulating their emotions.
Being isolated or ghosted by a partner is a sort of abuse that hurts more than being yelled or shouted at.
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.
