Gaslighting Phrases and How To Respond To Gaslighters
If you are being gaslighted, there are certain phrases and responses you should know to help you stand your ground and reclaim your life. Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which one person is made to believe that they are crazy or wrong, even when there is evidence to the contrary.
Here are some phrases that are commonly used to gaslight someone:
You’re overthinking this
You’re too sensitive
You’re making this all up
You’re being too emotional
You’re being paranoid
These phrases are used to make you doubt your own sanity and suggest that you are overreacting to a situation.
If you are being gaslighted, the best way to respond is to remain calm and factual. Keep a record of the conversations and evidence so that you can prove that you are not crazy. Remember, you are not the one who is crazy; your abuser is. You can also contact a support group or therapy to get help rebuilding your life.
