If You’ve Got Nothing Nice To Say…! 5 Reasons Why Silence Is Sometimes The Best Policy

3. Breathe

Sometimes giving someone the silent treatment gives you a chance to calm yourself, especially if you know you’re the confrontational type. This is a way for you to change the way you react to uncomfortable situations. If you usually are impulsive, combative or argumentative, your partner may not be receptive if you try to have a contentious conversation. By deciding to walk away and keep quiet, you can take as much time as you need to decompress, bring your blood pressure down and gather your thoughts. Once you re-think the issue, you may find yourself in a better state of mind to deal with the issue – or you may discover that what you’re upset about isn’t worth giving yourself a heart attack over.
