Short Silent Treatment Quotes ideas

silent treatment quotes and sayings images

“The initial flattery and attention will get the narcissist off to a flying start, and when the love-bombing follows, the codependent will be blown away. Somebody loves him, at last. No wonder he will become hooked so quickly. Even when the nonsense starts- the silent treatment, etc. – this is behaviour he recognises and is conditioned to. He just has to keep trying that little bit harder, in order to win back the narcissist´s approval.”

“It is the same logic reversal we saw earlier with the value of what we don’t know; everybody knows that you need more prevention than treatment, but few reward acts of prevention. We glorify those who left their names in history books at the expense of those contributors about whom our books are silent. We humans are not just a superficial race (this may be curable to some extent); we are a very unfair one.”

Be the change that beautifies your communication world.”

“If we disrespect each other during conflicts, conflicts become destructive; relationships are marked by criticism, defensiveness, the silent treatment, no compromise, no warmth, and no humor. Closeness spirals downhill fast. We wind up walking on eggshells, fighting louder, or withdrawing and avoiding one another. None of us wants that.”

“On those days when we are not ready to stop being offended, not ready to forgive, still determined to dish out the silent treatment, what we are actually saying is, ‘Thanks, but I don’t want to become more like the Savior today. Maybe tomorrow, but not today.’ Perhaps those are the times when we need to pray the hardest, the times it becomes clear that a change in behavior is not enough–that we must have a change in nature.”

“CNs often use passive-aggressive means to punish you when you do not behave in ways they want. Sometimes they will give you the silent treatment, act as if they didn’t hear you, or be distant when you long for connection. They will pull away and starve you of attention and affection. They will do things to inconvenience you, disrupting your life in some way.”

@Debbie Mirza

“What could he say? After the phone calls and the beating. After the desecration of his locker. The silent treatment. Pushed downstairs. What they did to Goober, to Brother Eugene. What guys like Archie and Janza did to the school. What they would do to the world when they left Trinity.”

“By the same token, I think it’s time that we allow ourselves to experience real anger as women. And I don’t mean that passive aggressive dance that we’ve employed for too many years. It’s not real anger if it is implied or a few degrees removed, if it takes the form of whispering, or cold shoulders, or silent treatment. Real anger is what popular culture would have us be afraid of, based on the fact that it is not courteous, elegant, or feminine.”

@Koren Zailckas

♨️

“Remember, your loved one’s behavior is not about you. You may feel controlled or taken advantage of through threats, no-win situations, silent treatment, rages, and other methods that seem unfair. But, no matter what the person with BPD may say, everything that’s going on stems not from you, but from the disorder, and the deep pain your loved one feels inside.”

@Paul T. Mason

♨️

“It’s such a simple torture – the silent treatment. As basic as tripping someone over or pulling their chair out before they sit down. And yet it’s so very effective. When someone has the willpower to pretend you’re not there, it nullifies you. How do you fight against that humiliation?”

“Silence isn’t always agreement. Sometimes people no longer argue because they no longer care.”

@Joyce Rachelle

♨️

“This “silent treatment,” the withdrawal and avoidance, may last for a day or for years. The longer it continues, the more certain it is that resentment and bitterness will grow and fester. Often this internalized anger will express itself in what the psychologists call passive-aggressive behavior. The person is passive on the outside, trying to give the appearance that nothing is bothering him, but eventually, the anger emerges in other ways, such as failure to comply with a request the other person makes.”

@Gary Chapman

♨️

“On those days when we’re not ready to stop being offended, not ready to forgive, still determined to dish out the silent treatment, what we’re actually saying is, “Thanks, but I don’t want to become more like the Savior today.

@Sheri L. Dew

♨️

“Others manipulate through pouting, giving others the silent treatment, being secretive or stubborn, conniving behind others’ backs, or being intimidating. Whatever the means, their behavior indicates that they place no value on open, straightforward communication; their only concern is that they get their way.”

@Les Carter

♨️

“And they lived happily (aside from a few normal disagreements, misunderstandings, pouts, silent treatments, and unexpected calamities) ever after.”

@Jean Ferris

♨️

“The silent treatment can be very frustrating to us, not to mention the effect it has on others. Most of us know when we are doing it; few of us know how to stop it. I buried my feelings for years, but if a feeling is strong enough it mill eventually surface. My family has paid the price.”

@Robert J. Ackerman

“So, there is always a chance to change your own story?” “Yeah, I’d say so.”

@Abbie Greaves

♨️

“I love to do this as it makes you feel happy and wanted. It also means that I am just about to push you off the cliff and land a hammer blow on you. I do not want you to know it is coming. Goodness me no, I want you feeling secure when I suddenly subject you to a period of silent treatment. That way I get a sensational reaction to my behaviour and I can feed deep on your over emotional behaviour.”

@H G Tudor

♨️

“The glory of Christ is actually blaring from the pages of the Bible. God is not only not giving you the silent treatment, he is practically yelling. The problem is not with his voice but with our ears. The more and harder we listen, however, the more of heaven’s glorious music we will hear, and thus the more of heaven’s glory we will see. And then our soul finds the rhythm of heaven.”

“so-called ketogenic diet has been a treatment for epilepsy since the early 1920s”

@David Perlmutter

♨️

“After one of my talks, a doctor told me that it felt unethical not to recommend dieting to her obese patients, but when I asked her about the ethics of prescribing a treatment with such a high failure rate, she fell silent.”

@Sandra Aamodt

♨️

“The silent treatment is not blatant; it’s insidious. The only person who really feels the silent treatment is the target. The person giving the silent treatment is not being overtly aggressive, abusive, or unkind in any visible way. This keeps him looking “good” and reasonable. When challenged, the giver of the silent treatment can say comments such as, “I’m fine.” “Nothing’s wrong.” “I’m not mad.” Or some other innocuous comment. Realize that these comments are forms of gas lighting and confabulation, which are other common narcissistic weapons.”

@Sharie Stines

♨️

“In real, adult relationships, however, the “silent treatment” can be a vicious weapon when used with an undertone of intimidation or as a way to exert control, deliver insult, or simply the lack of worth of the other person. The message is, “Why should I even waste my breath on you?” To be clear, I’m not talking about learning to drop a subject and stop clashing over it, or walking away from an obviously damaging argument. I’m referring to the purposeful ignoring of or refusal to talk to your partner as a form of punishment.”

@Aubrey Cole

♨️

“You fear that any fight could be your last. Normal couples argue to resolve issues, but psychopaths make it clear that negative conversations will jeopardize the relationship, especially ones regarding their behavior. Any of your attempts to improve communication will typically result in silent treatment. You apologize and forgive quickly, otherwise, you know they’ll lose interest in you.”

@Jackson MacKenzie

♨️

“In real, adult relationships, however, the “silent treatment” can be a vicious weapon when used with an undertone of intimidation or as a way to exert control, deliver insult, or imply the lack of worth of the other person. The message is, “Why should I even waste my breath on you?”

@Aubrey Cole

“She reassembled her deranged silent treatment of the whole of the twentieth century, but it quit before she could fire it.”

@Jonathan Lethem

“Take a moment to think about that. Doctors routinely recommend a treatment for obesity (dieting) that is likely to result in their patients’ gaining more weight. After one of my talks, a doctor told me that it felt unethical not to recommend dieting to her obese patients, but when I asked her about the ethics of prescribing treatment with such a high failure rate, she fell silent.”

“What?” I ask the back of his head. “Now you’re giving me the silent treatment?” His shoulders jiggle up and down. You know, one of those wry, silent chuckles, accompanied by a rueful shake of the head. Girls! So silly.”

@Rick Yancey

♨️

“Be wise and break the silent treatment before it break down your relationship beyond repair. Pride repels love ask the devil he will tell you.”

@Khuliso Mamathoni

♨️

“I kept every emotion locked up tight inside. I knew Leo was deeply hurt by my silence, and I liked hurting him, liked sharing my pain. Misery loves company, and I was a big hole of darkness, drawing everyone around me into my despair.”

@Ann Mayburn

♨️

“There is a special type of grief that comes from packing up your expectations for your own future.”

@Abbie Greaves

♨️

“People who show anger by withdrawing love are particularly pernicious. The outcome of such behavior is that nothing gets solved and the other person just feels punished. In contrast, emotionally mature people will usually tell you what’s wrong and ask you to do things differently. They don’t sulk or pout for long periods of time or make you walk on eggshells. Ultimately, they’re willing to take the initiative to bring conflict to a close, rather than giving you the silent treatment.”

@Lindsay C. Gibson

♨️

“Prayerful lament is better than silence. However, I’ve found that many people are afraid of lament. They find it too honest, too open, or too risky. But there’s something far worse: silent despair. Giving God the silent treatment is the ultimate manifestation of unbelief. Despair lives under the hopeless resignation that God doesn’t care, he doesn’t hear, and nothing is ever going to change. People who believe this stop praying, they give up. This silence is a soul killer.”

@Mark Vroegop

♨️

“A minute later the steam stopped. By then, I was soaking wet and, no doubt, my pores were open. Some people pay a fortune for this kind of beauty treatment. I got mine for free if you disregard the bruises, headache, and all those dead people.” Corin Hayes, Silent City (working title)”

@G R Matthews

♨️

“I knew enough about women to take the “silent treatment” for the gift it was.”

@B.V. Larson
