Gaslighting can be very distressing, but there are ways to handle it. 1. Understanding Gaslighting: Be aware of what gaslighting is about. It's a form of manipulation where a person attempts to make you doubt your own perception, memory, or sanity. 2. Trust Your Perceptions: If someone is frequently denying your experiences or making you doubt yourself, dig deep and trust your own thoughts. 3. Keep Evidence: If it’s possible, keep track of their antics. Save relevant texts, emails, or record conversations as proof to confirm your memories, especially if they have legal implications. 4. Seek Support: Sharing your experience with close friends, family, or a counselor or therapist can provide emotional support & valuable perspective. 5. Set Boundaries: Be clear about your mental and physical space. If necessary, limit or cut off conversations that lead to gaslighting. 6. Assertive Communication: Clearly and firmly express your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. Don't let them control the narrative. 7. Seek Professional Help: A therapists can offer techniques to deal with the psychological impact of gaslighting and coping mechanisms. 8. Consider Leaving the Relationship: Continual gaslighting can lead to serious emotional damage. If someone continuously manipulates or abuses you it might be best to distance yourself from them. Remember, everyone deserves respect, honesty, and healthy communication.
