Gaslighting is among the leading characteristics of toxic relationships. True or False?

Gaslighting in relationships refers to a situation where one partner makes the other doubt their sanity, intelligence, and generally their capabilities. The victim begins to think that they are not good enough and will often look for the approval of the oppressive partner before making any decision.

For example, an oppressive partner may force the victim to believe that a business they are trying to run is not so great by throwing in demeaning words and failing to offer support. The victim, who is vulnerable gives in to the criticism and gives up on growing the business.

Some partners may attack the victim on the areas they are not good at and use those areas to make them feel like they know nothing in general.

How many times have you found yourself being gaslighted or gaslighting someone?

    I lived with a narcissistic boyfriend for 3 and half years, I lost who I was. He made me believe I was bad and ungodly and that I should change, yet he was projecting his inadequacies and superiority complex on me!
