The Silent Treatment can cause so much pain to the person who is being ignored and given the silent treatment. The silent treatment can hurt, and narcissist knows this.
Narcissists seem to get a kick out of hurting those who actually love them and have genuine feelings for them.
Instead of begging and pleading the narcissist for attention or to “just talk to you“, do this instead.
Do This When The Narcissist Gives You The Silent Treatment
You, more than anyone on this planet, are deserving of your love. Do not give your love to someone who throws it to the side as if it were nothing.
The next time a narcissist, or ANYONE, gives you the silent treatment, GO ALONG WITH IT.
Understand this; they ignore us as a punishment. But when you do not care about the punishments, this flips the punishment on them.
Listen, Narcs crave attention; they need it like mosquitoes need blood to survive.
This is no hyperbole. Narcs are like parasites.
When you are comfortable with given no attention, this will make them reevaluate the way they want to “punish you.”
They like to ignore people because this is something they FEAR. But once you show them you are 100% okay with no attention, they will switch their tune-up.
By doing this, you set them in place and let them know YOU CAN DO WITHOUT THEM.
And remember this, “the silent treatment can often be a silent treat.”
Never beg anyone for attention; especially a narcissist.
