In the whirlwind that is a twin flame relationship, it can be hard to keep your balance, and one of the twin flames might resort back to the silent treatment after an argument.

Now, the silent treatment is cruel, as it leaves the other person completely helpless and without a way to resolve the situation.

If that sounds like you, I will tell you exactly what you can do when your twin flame gives you the silent treatment!

1) Understand why they are giving you the silent treatment

People who give someone the silent treatment do so because they are trying to hurt you as much as possible without actually saying so.

But sometimes, they don’t want to hurt you, and rather just try to protect themselves.

When somebody does not let you into their world, it is a way for them to emotionally distance themselves from you and thus feel less hurt.

To understand why they are doing this, you have to look at their past relationships and past love experiences.

If, for example, somebody close to them was left for somebody else, they might fear the same happening to them and thus feel insecure about your relationship.

Or if somebody close to them consistently abandoned them, they will have trust issues, and might constantly feel that you are going to leave them.

You see, when somebody close to them constantly criticized them and made them feel bad about themselves, they might be afraid that you will do the same.

There are many things that can happen that will make a person afraid of relationships and open communication.

In the end, the silent treatment is always more about them than it is about you.

You can’t always understand why somebody is the way they are, but you should try to anyway.

When you try to understand their point of view, you will be able to see that they are not being intentionally cruel or hateful towards you, but rather just trying to protect themselves from a bad situation.

When you try to understand what they are thinking, it will make it easier for them to open up and communicate with you again.

For example, if somebody is afraid that your relationship might end up like their relationship with their ex-partner, then they might be scared in their relationship because it could end badly for them.

They might also not want a relationship with open communication because they fear that by doing so, they will feel more insecure and vulnerable than before.

In such situations, the silent treatment is usually a way for them to protect themselves from feeling vulnerable.

However, even though you might understand their reason for giving you the silent treatment still doesn’t make it okay for them to treat you that way.

2) Tell them how their behavior affects and hurts you

You can do this by writing them an email or a letter and telling them how they hurt you and affect you by giving you the silent treatment.

This will help them understand that you are not doing anything wrong and that you are not trying to hurt them either.

If you are in a relationship with your twin flame, it might be helpful to have an honest and open conversation with them and tell them how their behavior affects and hurts you.

And if your twin flame is someone you love but do not have a relationship with, you can still communicate your feelings to them and explain to them how their behavior affects and hurts you.

You see, when someone you care about gives you the silent treatment, it can feel devastating.

It can make you feel insecure, vulnerable, and confused.

It can also make you question your relationship with that person and even your love for them.

But, if this is the case, then it is important to know that it is not your fault at all.

You have done nothing wrong and you have not hurt them in any way, so there is no reason for them to treat you like this either.

So if they are treating you like this because of something that happened in the past, then they need to learn how to let go of it and move on with their lives.

By telling them how their behavior affects you, you might change their mind.

What would a relationship coach say?

While this article will shed light on the main things you can do when your twin flame gives you the silent treatment, it can be helpful to speak to a professional relationship coach about your situation.

Not only will you get direct support, but their advice will be tailored to your individual needs.

Well, when my relationship was breaking down, I thought there was no going back.

But from the moment I got in touch with a relationship coach, I was given practical advice that helped me and my twin flame get back on track.

I was blown away by how understanding they were and how effective their methods proved to be.

3) Ignore it (if you can)

If you can ignore it and be completely unaffected by their silence, then it might be a good idea to do that.

This will show them that their behavior has no effect on you and will make them understand that their behavior is not helping them in any way.

If you can ignore their silence, I would advise you to do so, at least for a while until you feel that it is time to respond to them.

But I also know how difficult this can be, especially when you care about this person a lot.

It can be hard to ignore their behavior, especially when they are not responding to you and you want to say something.

But if you can do this, then it will show them that you are not affected by their silence and that it does not affect your relationship.

This might also make them feel uncomfortable and confused as well, so this is also a good thing.

The whole point of the silent treatment is usually to get you to beg them for contact again, so if you don’t do that, they’ll realize their methods don’t work.

4) Be gentle with yourself and don’t be hard on yourself

If you are being emotionally abused or if you are being given the silent treatment by your twin flame, then you must be gentle with yourself and do not be hard on yourself.

They are being cruel to you because they are not able to properly communicate with you and are being hurtful because they are feeling a certain way and do not know how to deal with it.

You are not at fault for their behavior, so please do not be hard on yourself and blame yourself for their hurtful and cruel behaviour.

Now: if there is something you did wrong, you can apologize for it, of course, but if you feel like you didn’t do anything wrong, then there is nothing to feel bad about!

5) Offer solutions for the future so that it doesn’t happen again

If you know that the silent treatment is something that happens frequently in your relationship, then you can offer them solutions for the future so that it doesn’t happen again.

For example, if you are in a relationship and your partner constantly gives you the silent treatment, you can offer them a way to communicate their feelings to you in a way that feels comfortable for them.

You can offer them to write their feelings down in a journal so that they can reflect upon them in peace, or you can offer them a specific time and place where they can discuss their feelings with you without any interruptions.

Now: it is important to discuss these things before things get heated again.

You can decide something like, if things get heated, you will take 2 hours to yourselves and then return to the conversation.

Little things like this can help you avoid the silent treatment completely in the future!

6) Set firm boundaries for yourself so that you aren’t a victim of emotional abuse

If you constantly let your twin flame give you the silent treatment and do not set firm boundaries for yourself, then you might be a victim of emotional abuse.

You can set boundaries for yourself by not allowing them to treat you badly and by not accepting their silence as a way to resolve an argument.

You can set boundaries for yourself by breaking up with them if you are in a relationship with them, or you can set boundaries for yourself by ending the relationship.

Now, you can also set boundaries for yourself by letting them know that the silent treatment is hurtful and that you need them to end their silence and talk to you.

Again, if this is something that happens often, the silent treatment can be a form of emotional abuse.

So, if you experience this, let your twin flame know that unless their behavior changes, you will not be in a relationship with them anymore.

You need to be firm about your boundaries and not let them treat you badly!

You need to be strict about this and know that unless they want to talk to you and resolve their issues with you, then they will have to do so in another way.

7) Don’t respond in anger and escalate things

If you can ignore their silence and be unaffected by it, then you can respond to them in a calm, gentle and loving way.

If they are constantly giving you the silent treatment and you know that they will not break out of their silence, it can be tempting to respond to them in anger.

Don’t do that, however, because that will just escalate the situation and make things even worse than they already are.

You can respond to them calmly and ask them why they are treating you like this and why they won’t just talk to you.

You see, especially when it comes to things like arguments, responding while you’re in a state of anger is usually not a good idea and will most likely escalate the situation.

If you are in a relationship with this person and they continue to treat you like this, then let them know that unless they change their behavior, then you won’t be in a relationship with them anymore.

And, if they continue to treat you like this, which is most likely the case, then break up with them.

They will know that unless they change their behavior, then you won’t be in a relationship with them anymore!

All these things can be said calmly, though.

8) Don’t beg or plead them to talk to you again

If you know that the silent treatment is something that they do frequently, then you should not beg them to talk to you again because that will only make them want to use it even more.

Instead, you can wait until they break their silence and offer them an opportunity to talk to you.

For example, you can tell them that you are there for them and that you want to talk about what happened and that you want to try to resolve the situation.

Now, begging and pleading are exactly what encourage the silent treatments, as your twin flame will feel as though they are in control when they utilize them.

You obviously don’t want that to happen, so please don’t beg them for contact.

Think about it: if you respect yourself, you will not accept this kind of behavior, right?

Now, I know what you’re going through is tough, but would it help to speak to a professional relationship coach?

When my twin flame and I were going through a rough patch, speaking to a coach at Relationship Hero literally saved us.

That’s why I always recommend their services to anyone facing silent treatment.

Their coaches have extensive experience in dealing with relationship breakdowns – their tried and testing methods could be the savior of your relationship too.

9) Don’t apologize if you did nothing wrong

If you know that you did nothing wrong and that you are completely innocent, then do not apologize just so they stop the silent treatment.

If you know that your twin flame is emotionally abusing you and giving you the silent treatment, then you should not apologize for something you haven’t done.

If you know that you did nothing wrong and have done nothing to hurt them, then please do not apologize, and do not let them guilt trip you into it.

You see, the silent treatment is an amazing way of getting you to take the blame for an argument just in an attempt to bring back peace.

The thing is, your twin flame will learn that as long as they give you the silent treatment, then you will be willing to take the blame for an argument.

In other words, as long as they give you the silent treatment, then they can guilt trip you into apologizing.

This will make them feel as though they are in control and that they can guilt trip you into apologizing for nothing at all.

That is not the basis of a healthy relationship at all.

10) Don’t be afraid to leave the situation

If you know that your twin flame is emotionally abusing you, then don’t be afraid to leave the situation.

You see, if you stay in a situation that is emotionally abusive, then you will feel as though you have no say in the matter and that your twin flame can do whatever they want with you.

You will feel as though there is no escape from this unhealthy relationship because they are in control of everything.

It can be very dangerous for your emotional or physical health to stay in a relationship that is emotionally abusive, so please do not be afraid to leave it.

Now, if this is a first-time thing, then talk to your twin flame and make it clear to them that if this behavior continues, you will leave.

Please don’t settle for their bs, you deserve way more than that!

11) Don’t take it personally or blame yourself for their behavior

If you know that you did nothing wrong and that you are completely innocent, then do not take it personally or blame yourself for their behaviour.

You have nothing to apologize for, and you have done nothing wrong, so please do not take their behaviour personally and do not blame yourself for their hurtful and cruel behaviour.

Taking it personally or taking the blame for their behavior will only hurt you, even more, so please know where you stand and who you are, and don’t settle for less!

You got this

If you can apply these tips and tricks to your relationship with your twin flame after they gave you the silent treatment, then you will definitely feel better and more empowered!

However, if you can’t do that, you can always seek help from a therapist or from a trusted friend who might be able to help you out!

In the end, you don’t have to go through this alone, so don’t be afraid to ask for assistance and help if you need it!
