There are lots of people and companies throughout the world who excel in making people believe what isn’t true. These days, we expect from advertising, media and even our politicians. We don’t expect it from our partner.
When gaslighting happens in relationships, it is more complicated than just telling a lie. This practice is often used by narcissistic people and can be extremely toxic to anyone on the receiving end. But it isn’t always easy to spot. The power of gaslighting is that it can make a victim feel as if they are at fault for their partner’s wrongdoings. This is abuse in itself and can be a sign of deeper issues.

There are many signs that someone is trying to gaslight. Some of the most common are that they not only blatently lie but also try to rewrite history. Gaslighters will stick to their version of events even when there is proof that their recollection is false. Gaslighters will also prey on what they know a person cares most about and use that to their advantage. (Psychology Today)
It’s easier to become a gaslighter than you think. If you have ever made someone question their sanity or belief because you were afraid to own up to the truth, you have gaslighted. No one is born being a gaslighter; they learn it socially. Oftentimes, a gaslighter does not know they are gaslighting; they are just being defensive. This is why it is so important to be self-aware. The good news is, once you recognize it, you can change. (Vox)
