Gaslighting is behavior that is inherently manipulative. When you are the person who is being gaslighted you question everything about yourself- from your memories and judgments to your own core values. You are thrown off balance and begin to sleepwalk through life. You’re emotionally beaten down.
Love is strong and can be hard, but it should never be so hard that you lose yourself to the point that you begin to forget who you truly are.
If your partner is emotionally unavailable…it doesn’t mean he/she doesn’t love you. A deeply rooted problem caused by whatever or whoever is the culprit. It has absolutely nothing to do with you.
My entire life I felt everyone-despite their political affiliation- should respect our President of the United States…because he was THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
It isn’t rocket science. It isn’t all shades of complicated. It all comes down to loving someone enough that you do things to make him or her happy. And if you can’t (or won’t) because of whatever reasons you’ve conjured up in your mind, then you know it isn’t love.
