Psychological abuse is a phrase that can frighten anyone. But it exists and the particular type of abuse we’re talking about today is called gaslighting — possibly one of the worst kinds out there. This method of emotional abuse is used by manipulators. You’d be surprised at how common this abuse is — it’s often overlooked and is practically invisible most of the time. You may find that after reading this, you will realize that you’ve used gaslighting before — or that someone else has used it on you.
