Exclamation Gaslighting

Who has experienced This? Can you please give your experience and how you recovered emotionally? My friend brought this to my attention that it sounds like my ex was doing this to me..I agree with her.

Gaslighting is a serious form of abusive bahavior. If you feel unsafe in this relationship you may want to have back up plans or an exit strategy. Having a professional therapist on your team can really help.

I was always told I was "too sensitive" when I would get upset at things my mother said or did. And in so many words, I was a "crazy, mixed-up teenager" when my mother found out I was talking to a teacher about my life. Therapy helped me get my life on track.

I was a victim of this from my step-father who was very abusive. But I haven't had any communication with him in years. I had to cut off all communication it was so bad. I am in individual and group therapy. I also have support from close friends.

Yes 100%...he’s definitely narcissistic. He goes to “therapy” not for that but because of his traumatic relationship with his ex..what a joke. Therapists can only go on with what they are telling them..he pays him so of course this therapist always takes his side like the women are the problem but it’s really him..
