Have you ever felt like you were going insane? Well, it might be because someone was trying to make you feel that way. One of the most common ways abusers keep control of their victims is to have them discredited to the point that they question their own sanity, feel terrible about themselves, and also can’t figure out what the truth is and what isn’t anymore. This tactic is called gaslighting, and it’s named after a 1950s movie that focuses on a man who has managed to trick a woman into thinking she’s going crazy.
It’s one of the worst mind games out there, and everyone needs to know about it. If you’ve been finding yourself questioning.. yourself.. and your relationship more frequently these days, you need to read this.
