Have you been gaslighted? During my abusive marriage to the monster Richard Zona Jr. the tactic of gaslighting was his most effective abuse tactic. If you do not understand gaslighting you may not know it even is happening to you.
Now that I am awakened and aware, I hear tactics of gaslighting every day. Are you a victim? Is the world a victim? I used to try to understand the monster I married. I wanted to believe some good was in his soul. I wanted to figure out how a monster becomes A MASTER AT GASLIGHTING. I realized it was pure and simple evil. As I awakened from the shell of a person to having my own opinion and voice, I realized the destruction to my person years of gaslighting had caused. Lying, chaos, manipulation, calling you crazy, distorting your own reality and emotional feelings is how the EVIL of gaslighting works.
~Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person in order to gain power, makes a victim question their reality, Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done so slowly and over time the victim does not realize they have been brainwashed.~
Watch the warning signs as now that I am awakened I see GASLIGHTING worldwide. It can wear you down.
1.)They tell blatant lies without conscience.
2.)They deny they ever said something. It makes you question your reality. I heard ” I never said that ” often.
3.)They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
4.)They wear you down overtime. A lie here, a lie there. Causing chaos etc.
5.) Watch ACTIONS as they do not match their words. My ex abuser used to tell everyone he was a “man of God” and then force sex on me daily. Or not pay rent at many of his businesses. Or outright rip off his own blood brother.
6.)They can throw in positive reinforcement so you do not think they are all that EVIL. It keeps you confused. Is this person good or bad?
7.)They know chaos and confusion confuses people. They would prefer to keep you confused. They will cause it purposely to distort your reality.
8.) They project on to you. If they are a liar and a cheater they will accuse you of being just that. This to me is the easiest aspect of gaslighting to identify. Don’t waste your time trying to prove a gaslighter wrong. Remember they are evil. It will wear you down.
9.) They try to align people against you. (Flying Monkeys) They are habitual liars. Do not believe their lies of what others may have said about you. This is a ploy to isolate you. They want you to be confused on who to trust or turn to.
10.) They tell you “you are crazy” and tell others “you are crazy.” This helps them dismiss you as a person. LISTEN INTENTLY IF YOU HEAR SOMEONE SAY “They, he or she is CRAZY, you now know you are looking at a narcissistic evil abuser.
11.) They tell you everyone else is a liar. More projection. Another tactic to make you question your reality.
