What is Gaslighting?

Words not matching actions are called manipulations and refusing to be held accountable is called gaslighting. Gaslighting is a manipulative tool that abusers use to gaslight their victims. Narcissistic Abuse is manipulation. Someone who says they love you, but cheats, lies, hurts you, does not love you. Someone who says they will change but their actions do not match their words, time and time again, will not change.

What is Gaslighting?

Gaslighting is the act of creating doubt in a person’s mind, so they begin to question reality.  It’s the dismissal of one’s emotions and feelings, it’s a form of manipulation, psychological control and emotional abuse.

Gaslighting sounds like:

  • Don’t be so sensitive
  • What’s wrong with you
  • Calm down
  • Stop exaggerating
  • Stop being so insecure/jealous
  • Can you hear yourself
  • Stop twisting things, I was just joking
  • I would never do that to you
  • You are mental, you need help
  • You are imagining things, That’s not what happened
  • You’re so emotional
  • It’s not a big deal
  • Stop getting upset over nothing

Someone who’s being gaslit will often worry about being too emotional, have low self esteem, self blame, feel confused, feel a need to constantly apologise, feel a loss of identity.
