Our instincts serve a purpose. Whenever your gut sends you an uneasy signal, it's wise to heed its advice.
When gaslighted by a partner, pause the cycle of unproductive rehashing. Step back, gather thoughts, seek support from friends, gain fresh perspective.
True care means never using such hurtful words. Genuine concern prompts therapy or medical advice, not verbal harm.
Capture chat screenshots, share with a friend, take evidence photos. Jot down post-convo notes promptly. Preserve crucial interactions efficiently.
Beware of manipulation aiming to isolate and weaken you. Turning your support against you is a tactic to control and retain power. Stay vigilant.
When doubting reality, consult a pro to discern manipulative dynamics and abuse, ensuring your well-being.
Stay firm, don't let your partner's doubts shake you. Speak confidently about memories, and avoid debates. Close with "We recall it differently."
Don't engage in arguments over differing memories. Politely state, "Not interested in debating, let's move forward." Trust your perspective.
Keep a list of responses that you can fall back on like: "I remember what happened." "You don't get to tell me how to feel."
