“Getting Out”

“While it might be a mistake to give up on a relationship with a passive-aggressive man until all avenues for change have been explored, at some point, you must cut your losses.  If you’ve tried your best to contain his passive aggression and have been unsuccessful, then you should think about getting out of the relationship or distance yourself from him – whether he’s a spouse employer, employee, family member or friend.  At some point, you may decide to break up, divorce or quit.  To stay in a relationship that is harmful to you is not only pointless but self-destructive.  This is one of the unfortunate costs of passive aggression:  conflicts all to quickly escalate to the point where getting out is your only choice.
