Still struggling from the effects of Gaslighting?

The Gaslight Effect is not officially recognized, nor is it widely even known.
Even when it is accepted, recognized and known not many people seem to know what to DO ABOUT IT to heal it…   The fact is being in a relationship with a narcissist over a long period of time has long lasting traumatic effects that can be extremely catastrophic to the person suffering them.


  • Endless, repetitive obsessive thinking about your ex
  • Constantly trying to find explanations for what has happened
  • Uncharacteristic jealousy/ insecurity
  • Feeling like you don’t know the difference between right and wrong

  • You’re second-guessing your memory

“Why doesn’t anyone understand?”

This is a common statement that I hear abused people say all the time.

  • Gaslighting is a covert aggressive way of distorting another person’s perception of reality to the point that that person questions their sanity or their memory.
  • Gaslighting is crazy-making, it makes you think that you’re actually going crazy.
  • Gaslighting is a way of hiding the abuse.
  • Gaslighting is lying with a goal.
  • The motive behind the gaslighting is to make you think that you’re crazy or that your memory doesn’t work right.   So you can’t trust yourself and your perceptions of reality.
  • This means you’ll defer to the abuser for an account of what’s real so slowly over time the abuser becomes the authority over your life.
  • Gaslighting takes place in relationships, like one-on-one relationships.  It takes place in friendships, in family, in work, you’ll see gaslighting on the news, you’ll hear gaslighting coming from politicians, corporate shills, cult leaders, advertising commercials, etc.
