Warning Symptoms of Gaslighting: Protect Yourself
You can't decide because you doubt yourself and don't trust your own judgment.
You dismiss your own feelings. You wonder if you are too sensitive or jealous because he/she told you that you are overreacting or being too sensitive.
You feel confused most of the time
You tell lies out of fear. You lie about things because you're afraid of being wrong, being criticized, or being verbally attacked and called crazy or overreacting.
You are always on the lookout and on edge. You feel stressed and threatened. You fear something bad will happen.
You think you're a bad person and the reason of the other person's problems, and he/she says you're the problem and he/the she's victim of your conduct and mental state.
You apologize a lot, even when it wasn't your fault.
You've become weak and can't stand up or speak up for yourself; you've lost your old self-confidence.
You don't show your real feelings anymore, other than maybe crying when you can't hold them in any longer.
You feel depressed, alone, helpless, hopeless, and misunderstood.
You do not know who you are
You think you're too demanding; that's what he or she says about you.
