The Silent Treatment

For those of you who employ the silent treatment as a punitive way to address a conflict, think about this: you will KILL your relationships by shutting people out / down.

If you need some time to regroup, cool off, or simply step away, just say it. Unless they are batshitinsane [another problem, altogether], the other party will understand and give you your needed space which will likely accelerate your personal process. And it will increase their sense of trust in you.

Win - Win.
