The Silent Treatment

You know when someone is angry at you, and they give you the silent treatment? They act like them not talking to you is a punishment worthy of whatever injustice you have committed. Like their withdrawal of verbiage will send you into a shame spiral regretting every moment you are not engaged in the dialogue of why you suck. They may even turn their back to you and stare out the window while they think hateful thoughts in your direction. Well… I think the silent treatment rocks. Keep all that to yourself!

The silent treatment is the best form of expressing anger I can think of. I don’t have to listen to your complaining, there is silence for me to think of other things, listen to music, or even make a phone call. This so-called penalty isn’t making me suffer at all. In fact, it is amazing! You are stewing in your own negativity while I continue living my life!

What is that you say? You don’t agree with me? Well, whatever… I am not talking to you then.
