How do you deal with someone giving you a cold shoulder? The psychology behind it as i understand is to make the other person feel low, confused,dejected,isolated. It is according to me the worst form of bullying. I am currently being subject to it by my friend's mother. I am not clear about the reason but i know her nature very well. She is highly opinionated and judgmental. We did have an "disagreement" on a certain topic on our wassapp group (a group of 4 families). She was talking to me even after that but from past 3 weeks she is giving me the cold shoulder. I respect her age and do go upto her and wish her every time we are in same company, she gives me a fake smile and moves away. I am trying my best to ignore this and just carry on but at some level is hurting me. I am training myself to ignore it and deal with it gracefully. I would love to hear from you all if you were also been in a situation like this and how did you deal with it. I don't want to drag my friend into this. She and i still share a very cordial relationship i have not shared with her about this. I am not sure if i should.
