Thank you so much for sharing this. I've often suspected my husband of doing exactly these things, but that suspicion alone made me feel like I was crazy!! You've taught me so much. A very important article!!!

I have been gaslighted for 8 long years by my spouse and i never realized. Those days i was a different person.altogether...extremely unhappy with myself...i felt convinced that i was such a poor influence on everyone and that i wad a curse to all.around me.

My spouse would have gone on...had some dramatic turn of events made him leave me. Only later...wjen i tried to analyze his behavior by reading extensively...did i come across this term gasloghting and coupd fully repatr it to.my situation.

Gaslighting for long changed me completely...i thank.god fpr not having lost my sanity all together and for having been able to rediscover my true self...

This describes Brexit to a tee. It is easy to tell who the political gaslighters are among our Politicians and Media people. How Brexit itself has been twisted from we leave to negotiate a trading agreement to the.mess it is today. Someone will write a book The Gaslighting of Brexit for instance.

Gaslighting only works if :

1. You are unaware of it, and

2. If your self confidence and sense of self is wavering

Fortunately, I was onto my then fiance but the tougher I was to break, the more devious the gaslighting became. Eventually I walked away. It wasn't worth staying!

Thank you for this amazing article

I had only recently heard of this term. It explains so much to me. I recently heard this expression from one of my Sons once I started researching it, I was amazed how many times in my trusting life I had been manipulated in this manner. Also unknowly having done it to others when I had my own unfounded fears.

This by far has been the best informative but simple to understand article I have found.

Thank you for helping me this article will make a big difference in my life going forward.

when you become aware what gaslighting is, things become clear. it turned out my boyfriend was a completely different person I believed him to be.

actually, completely the opposite. he is a consciously BAD person who used gaslighting against me
