Gaslighting 

 

What is gaslighting?
“Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse. It’s the act of manipulating a person by forcing them to question their thoughts, memories, and the events occurring around them.” 
▪▪▪
How do you become a gaslighter? 
People aren’t born gaslighters, they learn these behaviours from the relationships they observed growing up. “They witness it, feel the effects of it, or stumble upon it and see that it is a potent tool.” Gaslighters lack self-awareness and see their actions as self-expression. However their actions can lead to someone questioning their own sanity.
▪▪▪
How to spot a gaslighter
Withholding (he or she refuses to listen or says they don’t understand)
Countering (when the abuser questions the gaslightee’s memory of an event)
Blocking/diverting (when the abuser changes the subject or questions the victim’s thinking)
Trivialising (making the victim’s needs or feelings seem unimportant)
Forgetting/denial (when the manipulator pretends to have forgotten the incident)
