This board was created for funny / spiritual / quotes/ sayings or how it made me feel the day I read it. It is not a direct reflection on any specific person, thing, incident. However, if the shoe fits.
Or you apologize and still don't talk to each other and they tell you to not contact your niece! Yep seems like you really accepted my apology! But that's not on me, I didn't tell you to stop talking to your nephew.
Silent treatment implies it really didn't mean anything to begin with. Or if it did, they are too wrapped up in themselves to care about the actual relationship. People like that aren't ready for the reality of life with another human being. It takes two to craft and mold a healthy relationship... it takes work at times.
