Understanding Gaslighting: Identifying the Signs in Your Relationship

Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation that can leave you questioning your reality, memory, and self-worth. Here’s how to recognize it:

🔍 Key Features of Gaslighting:

  1. Denial of Reality: Your partner constantly denies things you know happened.

  2. Trivializing Feelings: Your emotions and feelings are dismissed as overreactions.

  3. Shifting Blame: They always turn the tables, making you feel at fault for their actions.

  4. Withholding Information: They refuse to share important details or pretend not to understand you.

  5. Rewriting History: They frequently change narratives, making you doubt your memory.

🚨 How to Identify Gaslighting:

  1. Trust Your Instincts: If something feels off, trust that feeling.

  2. Keep a Record: Document conversations and incidents. This can help you see patterns.

  3. Seek Outside Perspectives: Talk to trusted friends or family to get an outside view.

  4. Self-Care: Focus on your mental health and seek therapy if needed.

Remember, recognizing gaslighting is the first step towards reclaiming your power. You deserve a relationship built on trust, respect, and honesty.
