Have you ever been told that you are crazy?
Have you ever been told that you did something…but you don’t remember doing it?
Have you ever been told that you said something…when you don’t remember saying it?
Have you ever been told that you never said something…when you know that you did?
Has your abuser ever told you something…then denied that he ever said it?
Have you ever experienced violence… then your abuser even denied it?
These things happened to me many times over the years. Repeatedly, I was told that I was crazy. I was told that I was stupid, ignorant, an idiot, etc. He even denied that he threatened to kill me… even convincing the police that I was exaggerating, lying and even harassing him. I did not know what this was called. I did not know why this happened. I just knew that it made me feel like I was “losing” my sanity.
Then I learned about “gaslighting”. Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse. I was not crazy and many other victims are not crazy! We are all victims of deceptive psychopathic abusers. Read about “Gaslighting Abuse.” It’s very real and a big problem for many victims.
