In 2007, Dr. Robin Stern coined the phrase “gaslight effect” to explain the long-term effects of repeated gaslighting: an insidious, and sometimes covert form of emotional abuse in which a gaslighter undermines and controls another person by deflecting, twisting and denying the reality.
Gaslighting can happen in a romantic relationship between family members, or at work – but in every case it leaves, you constantly second-guessing yourself, unable to make simple decisions, and destabilize from the constant reality shift.
Also, have we been politically gaslighted on a national level?
