Action To Be Taken When Gaslighted

The antidote to gaslighting is to be emotionally aware. One has to become self-reliant and stop being gullible.

  1. Identify the problem that you have with your spouse.
  2. Remove the distortions and sort out the truth.
  3. Understand that there is a power struggle with your partner.
  4. Give yourself permission to feel your feelings.

  6. Understand that it is okay to leave someone if required.

  10. Indulge in self-care and self-compassion.
