I was reading one of the articles on Elite Daily and came across a term that I could relate to so much!
“Gaslighting” — a manipulative form of emotional abuse when people deny and invalidate your emotional experiences. It can make you start to focus more on the feelings of the other person than your own, and make you feel like you’re always wrong even when you’re not simply because they don’t take accountability for their wrongdoing, blame you, and somehow even when you know you’re on the right side, you wind up apologizing just to smooth things over because you’re uncomfortable with the tension. You then start to tiptoe around conflict and worry more about their feelings than your own.
It’ll make you feel like you can’t ever bring up anything that’s bothering you because the other person will just blame you and then it’ll continue to frustrate you little by little which is ultimately unhealthy for you.
I’ve attached a link to this article in my bio. Do give it a read, it’s pretty helpful! ✨
