Gaslighting is a type of abuse that can make you question your sanity. Narcissists love it, addicts make good use of it and your loved ones can use it to make your life hellish. It’s not a nice thing to be gaslighted.
Gaslighting is when someone manipulates another person through psychological means to make them question their reality. The term gaslighted originates from the film Gaslight released in 1944 and the play it was based on Gas Light from 1938.
