Wish I had known more about gaslighting earlier too and am glad to see so much more information available on it now. Thanks for sharing such a painful part of your life in such detail so that others like me may learn more about gaslighting.

I had my own personal experience being gaslighted. I was bewildered when it happened to me and started reading up. My research led me to sociopathy and psychopathy and I suspected that the person gaslighting me was (is still?..idk, been no contact for many years now) suffering from one of those personality disorders. Some of my readings mention a link between those disorders and gaslighting.

I’m thankful I decided to leave that relationship early (it lasted maybe a few months). Though it was brief, I still resented the fact that someone had the audacity to think they had the right to obfuscate my reality/intelligence. Though I may not embark on it, I will be interested to know if there is any way to get back at (avenge) ‘gaslighters’. Most articles I read thus far provide deeper understanding on what gaslighting is but none mentions how to get out of such a situation with as little damage to oneself as possible, or even get back at the perpetrator. Just sayin’.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
