Hi, have you heard about gaslighting?


It sounds as though he may be good at it.

What I learnt with my ex is, it doesn’t matter how good, worthy, forgiving, fair or reasonable you try to be, it will never be good enough.

My epiphany happened as I prepared for court…

…you learn to expect a negative reaction from him and then you begin to think you deserve it.

Just because you know he’s likely to react a certain way doesn’t me you deserve it.

Saying that, my ex still gets to me and I’m still working on my responses. Even this weekend!

Giving advice is always easier.
