Hey there! Good evening everyone :)
It's already a month of march just how quickly time flies and for this new month, I'm gonna leave you an interesting article to read.
Do you constantly find yourself going back and forth trying to determine whether the hurt you feel is real, or if it’s just all “in your head?” Are you tormented with self-blame and other negative thoughts about yourself?
If Yes, that's Gaslighting!
Is a form of manipulation, It often occurs in an abusive relationship or sometimes they just simply manipulate and make you weak. Gaslighting can be confusing, it will mislead you. Self-blaming may cause you to overthink or be sensitive.
So be aware of this matter and watch out for these 5 signs:
Are you a self-blamed person?
Gaslighting from other people and what you constantly blamed can lead you to eventually place that blame on yourself, you may find that you gradually begin to believe in their accusations and feel that YOU ARE always at fault.
Excusing others when they don't deserve it
When self-blaming occurs you might find that you also had the tendency to excuse other people for their insensitive behavior or mistreated you but in your mind "They do not mean it" Gaslighters will use that as an excuse to mislead you and to think that you misinterpret them eventually, you develop the habit of excusing others every time they hurt you and made no effort to apologize.
Minimizing your own experiences
You had always thought that "maybe it wasn't that bad" or "maybe it was just in my head"perhaps you've debated with yourself about what you've done until you convinced yourself out of these experiences, In that way you are minimizing you're and dismissing your own feelings.
Believing you're too sensitive
Convincing yourself that you are just too sensitive cause, hand in hand with constantly blaming yourself and excusing others. You may have easily accepted from being told that you're so dramatic, emotional, sensitive, or... even crazy.
It may also result that those gaslighters refusing to acknowledge that they hurt you.
Negative Beliefs about yourself
Constant Gaslighting and Criticism from others take a toll on you causing you to believe the negative things you've been told about yourself.
Do you ever catch yourself thinking or saying "there must be something wrong with me" or 'I'm not enough".
These negative thoughts can affect the different aspects of your life from relationships to school, work as you falsely believe you're undeserving of genuine love and happiness, or badly it can lead you to some serious mental health issues such as; Depression and Anxiety.
If you ever feel this way you shouldn't worry cause it is possible to heal and you can easily move forward from self-gas lighting.
You just need to learn how to affirm your experience, feelings and improve self-esteem alongside that can be your way out of self-gaslighting.
Ps. Always remember that you're feelings are always valid!
