It’s quite possibly the worst punishment humans can undergo. When inmates are punished for unruly behavior, they are isolated in solitary confinement. This is meant to be the one way to protect other inmates as well as create an intense emotional situation for the unruly inmate. Without interaction with other people, inmates are likely to deal with greater levels of depression and anxiety as their thoughts and ideas of life have no one to confirm or deny their validity.
When a husband and wife get in a fight, the ending result is often silence for a period of time. This lack of communication can lead to a greater level of stress on the relationship than a verbally expressive disagreement.
At work, employees who are ignored or do not find their emails validated by a response get irritated and end up taking out their frustrations with others, creating drama among other workers.
God says he’s never going to leave us or forsake us. It’s difficult to feel ignored or to be left out of the loop, God will always be close by to provide comfort and an ear to hear our thoughts.
