•Don’t Adapt To Their Inappropriate Behaviour:

Whatever is present in our life is what we have allowed. And this applies to our relationships, jobs and way of thinking, etc.

For no reason should you be silent when being gaslighted, except to protect yourself from a situation that has gotten out of hand. Silence toward abuse would be letting your abuser feel that it’s okay to treat you the way he/she is.

•Find The Flaw In Your Gaslighter’s Logic And Use It Against Him: Oftentimes, people who gaslight do it from a very flawed logical perspective. When you’re able to identify this flaw, counter any claims or accusations they have against you. This often would make the gaslighter look foolish and would be left with nothing to say.

However, this should be used with care because if your gaslighter is abusive and is flaring up because of this, then you should step away from situation until the person has cooled down.
