The world’s most myopic, competitive, and ironic statement ever made in the entire history of ever:
“What you went through, that doesn’t sound anything like real gaslighting. Are you sure that’s even gaslighting? You just sound super sensitive.”
I had a peer tell me this at a NAMI Connection group a few years ago. At the time, I felt really ashamed I even told one of my stories about my ex-wife … and that’s how I know I’m the recipient of gaslighting, from both my ex-wife and this peer.
