As we are reminded daily by sad news that life is too short, I think it’s important to tell people that you love them. On the flip side, if people tick you off, tell them. Giving people the silent treatment or ghosting them because your feelings are hurt is kind of juvenile and passive-aggressive.
Many times, you might be offended by people and they may have no idea because they are unaware. I think in developing relationships with people, I think it’s important to let them know where you stand, rather than them following up with you on multiple occasions and not getting word back.
People aren’t mind readers and if you’re interested in maintaining a relationship, the silent treatment just doesn’t work.
