These videos are about my personal recovery from narcissistic abuse. They are not a substitute for seeking mental health treatment from a mental health professional.
Gaslighting is a tactic used by narcissists to control you and make you feel like you are going crazy. It gives them the upper hand.
If you continue to be in a gaslighting situation for an extended period of time, it will take a toll of your mental health.
I give examples in this video from my own relationships. I give two examples of different types of gaslighting tactics that were done to me. One type involves physical objects being misplaced or moved on you. This is similar to the movie “Gaslight” which I watched recently on Amazon Prime.
The other tactic is when they deny certain conversations ever took place. They make you feel like your memory is going and that you are mentally unbalanced.
These gaslighting tactics are also used for them to scold you, punish you and demean you.
I am not a mental health professional. I am a blogger on WordPress. I have a blog called Gentle Mental Annie, which focuses on mental health issues and some other random “Annie” stuff.
I also have a blog called the Lovely Wounded Lady, which is for women from abuse to come together to share experiences and support each other.
The videos here and the blogs are supportive and caring but they are not a substitute for mental health professional treatment. If you are feeling depressed, having severe anxiety or any other narcissistic abuse syndrome symptoms, you should seek professional mental treatment .
I do like the Spartan Life Coach videos, if you are looking for more information about this topic. They were helpful to me, as was his course on Overcoming Narcissistic Abuse. These are just friendly reviews / suggestions.
Please do not get to the place where you are severely depressed or suicidal without seeking professional help. Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome is very severe and can cause mental health issues.
