The meat & potatoes of (L)it.

Most of us like to think that we are in control of our own lives and that we can trust our own perceptions and memories. However, there is a form of emotional manipulation that can undermine all of that, leaving victims feeling confused, alone, and doubting their own sanity.

This manipulation tactic is known as gaslighting. Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which false information is presented with the intent of making victims doubt their own memories and perceptions. In some cases, the gaslighter may deny that certain events ever took place, or they may present contradictory evidence.

Over time, this can cause victims to question their reality and to feel increasingly isolated and alone. If you suspect that you are being gaslighted, it is important to reach out for help from a trusted friend or professional. Remember, gaslighting is a serious form of emotional abuse, and you should not have to suffer through it alone.
