Gaslighting is super easy for Narcissists to pull off because they are so full of hot air that they must get it out somehow, or else they get major tummy aches.
Yes, when Narcissistic Personalities gaslight, it is a bunch of B.S.; this does not make it any less harmful, or damaging to their victims.
Gaslighting is a favorite tactic for Narcissists because if they can cause us to second-guess ourselves, then we will reach out to them in greater dependence. Of course, this increases the Narcissist’s control and domination over us, which theythrive on.
There are many other reasons predators like to gaslight their victims, such as if they go around claiming we are crazy or delusional, it gets the word out to others to prepare for future Smear Campaigns. Diabolical Personalities are always 10 steps ahead!
The more subtle their crazy-making techniques, the more damage done to our mentality. Masked monsters can brainwash us without our awareness. Therefore, the respecting the quiet tugging of our intuition needs serious reflection and action, even if we can’t pinpoint why something seems off.
The more confident we are about believing in ourselves, the less appealing we will seem to Narcissists, and they will prey on those who are more unsure of themselves (not always, but just as a general rule).
