7 Relationship-Destructive Gaslighting Expressions

Relationships may suffer as a result of the emotional abuse known as gaslighting.

Someone must be tricked into questioning their own senses and memories.

You're overreacting,' for example, is a classic gaslighting phrase.

'You're being too sensitive' is another.

You're insane' or 'You're hallucinating things,' for example, are other phrases that gaslighters might use.

They might retract what they said or did, or they might blame their spouse for something they didn't do.

'You're simply trying to provoke a conflict,' and 'You're usually so negative,' are examples of other gaslighting expressions.
