Gaslighting by definition is an act of undermining a partners emotions and feelings in a way to deny their reality

By invalidating their feelings and emotions, the gaslightee is being told they are wrong. Gaslighting is most commonly seen in relationship dynamics as an attempt to control the moment. To stop the conflict. To ease the gaslighter’s anxiety, and to regain control in a degraded power struggle. Now before you gaslight me into calling me too sensitive, let me call attention to the fact disagreements, even arguments, are healthy in relationships. The difference between a healthy dynamic and an abusive one is hearing and validating the person’s concerns. If the person you are arguing with is deflecting responsibility in an attempt to tear down their partner, this is called gaslighting. Even better if the person being gaslit is a pleaser, trying to cater to other’s needs and expectations. I call this an easy mark. As an empath, I can often see my own responsibility in situations where I shouldn’t. I can EMPATHIZE with someone else’s reality and this can open the door to being taken advantage of, even gaslit.

I want to create a place that is safe and positive and where I can also share my knowledge and insight and maybe help someone else

My name is Angie and I am from a small town in Iowa. I was born and raised in the same town and have only live a little bit of my life in towns nearby. I am creating a place where I can share my journey on the road to healing and finding peace. I have lived with depression and anxiety most of my life and feel like it is time to share and help others with their journey.

Sensitive people have so much to offer the world — we’re the peacekeepers and the shoulders people cry on, and we’re the ones people want to live next to because we are respectful of noise levels — but we just need the space to do that

Keywords: relatable

The more nurtured we feel, the more we can tune in to our gifts, and the more we can be of service to the world.

Here we were all wishing to grow up faster, when really I’d love nothing more than to get the chance to be a kid for just one day to soak in all those moments that seem to be wasted on us in our youth

Keywords: childhood , national nickname day , nickname

If you still have a nickname (one that you like), I hope you celebrate the fact that everyone has some boring name on their driver’s license, but not everyone is given a nickname so celebrate your uniqueness!

Whenever I feel like I’ve lost control of everything around me, I start making poor choices that don’t help my mental health

Keywords: {0}

I don’t necessarily have control over my main trigger being my main trigger, but I do have control over what triggers my anxiety. The amount of caffeine I consume if and on a daily basis is the main one, the other is the surrounding/environmental factors. For example large group settings or get-togethers, grocery stores, malls, even driving. These are some surrounding/environmental factors that can trigger my anxiety depending on the circumstances.

When I was in the trenches of change, and feeling extremely lost and broken, I feared being alone because sitting with myself meant I’d have to feel all my hurt

I’ve learned to not resist the hurt, sadness, fear, loss, and loneliness when it shows up, and amazingly the emotions leave as quickly as they arrive. Even more, when they’re embraced with a spirit of acceptance, the result is always a deeper sense of self-love, peace and gratitude.

My brain gets overwhelmed with too much information of different kinds to process

Keywords: tips and tricks , education , autism , reading

But it helps to reduce the overload by using captions (combining speech with visuals, thus reducing the number of information modalities) or watching something animated, which compresses the demands of visual and spatial information greatly.
