Are you a victim of gaslighting? — Anita’s Perspectives on Life.

Did you even know what is gaslighting?  The term has been everywhere since Donald Trump’s inauguration, so much so that the Oxford Dictionaries named it one of the most popular words of 2018: gaslighting In simple words, the phrase “to gaslight” means to the act of undermining another person’s ability by denying reality and their […]

This is a reblog, but I thought it explained Gaslighting very well.

A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Real gaslighting is far more menacing and deadlier than portrayed in the article. It is not just a couple pulling tricks on the other to make the other one seemed crazy. It’s deadly. Gas-lighters do things like rig your car so that you will have an accident. Break in your home and poison your pets or even poison your food. Gangstalkers and gaslighters do a lot of the same things.

    • No a gaslighter is not a “Gaslighter” is often a Passive Aggressive Person EveryOne who is Convinced They ARE Doing Totally The RIGHT.” A gaslighter knows they are wrong; that’s why they hide it from the authorities. Gaslighting can be jailed if their actions cause their victims harm. It’s in the same category as master-minding.

      Passive-aggressive behavior is a pattern of indirectly expressing negative feelings instead of openly addressing them. There’s a disconnect between what a person who exhibits passive-aggressive behavior says and what he or she does.

      Gaslighters do horrible things and try and convince the person they didn’t do it. They know exactly what they are doing.

    • Yernasia, most victims of gangstalking are also victims of gaslighting . Gangstalkers try to gaslight their victims into believing they are crazy. That the deadly things being done to them are all in their head. They try to plant doubt that the victim is being harmed. Some victims are gangstalked and gaslited until the end.

      Gangstalkers try to make their victim believe what is happening to them is not true. That can be very dangerous for a victim to not believe what’s happening. If they don’t believe it, then they will do nothing to protect themselves. That’s what Gangstalkers want. A sitting duck.

      Gangstalkers and Gaslighters have been known to say something similar to what you said they says: The worst “alleged victims of Gangstalked and Gaslighting,” ARE those who lie to themselves about being “Gaslit and Gangstalked.”

      It’s vital for gangstalkers, just like gaslighters, to make their victims and everyong esle believe it’s all in the person’s mind. If not, then their cover will be blown if people start to believe they are actually attacking the person who say they are being attacked. Both gangstalkers, and gaslighters operates by secretiveness.

      This is like someone come to you in privacy and punched you in the face and when you cry out. “Ow! That hurt! What did you do that for?”

      “Do what?” they will ask. “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I didn’t do anything to you.” will be their forever reply.

      Even Hitler said “If keep telling a lie enough times, you can make the victim or opposition believe it.”

    💎 I Guess “Gaslighters” have a role EveryOne; basically The Way I SEE (Soulful Emotional Energy) it is that We ALL Have Internal Buttons and Triggers that ARE Worth Eliminating…because “Gaslighters” cannot Ignite without Fuel and End Up Igniting and Hurting ThemSelves EveryBody; so Chill when The Other is Being Mean

        • 🤣 My friend, that’s not Gaslighting. That’s called being a family member. Relatives are rarely gaslighters because they tell you upfront why they are acting however they’re behaving. They tell you what they want you to do. There’s no hidden agenda. You can see their movitation a mile away, because they are not hiding it. And you know them.

          Just like they know your triggers, then you know theirs. Relatives are usually telling you to watch out for the gaslighters.

          Most gaslighting happens not with the family of orientation, the family you were born into, but with friends and spouses.

          Gaslighting does a lot more than merely upset people. They deliberately manipulate situation for a desired outcome which is usually very harmful to the person they are gaslighting.

    • Good for you in calling them out. But just be careful in dealing with gaslighter. They possess a Dark Tetrad personality. One apt to seek revenge for the tiniest insult or injury. I’ve met a few people who are gifted. I heard it is difficult to deal with being an an Ultra Sensitive Empath (USE).
