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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

I’m going to explain a few coping methods professional therapists and psychologists recommend

Keywords: anxiety , borderlinepersonalitydisorder , bpd , depression , mentalhealth , mentalillness , mentalwellbeing

Those who have had some level of therapy like CBT and DBT will probably recognise some of these coping mechanisms. A lot of them stem from the idea of grounding and mindfulness. I know many people have strong opinions for or against mindfulness, but I ask if you can try them and see what helps. All of these methods hopefully can help you in situations where your mental wellbeing isn’t okay and can help make changes to build a life worth living.

I am proud that I do not have friendships which are toxic

I spent two years of my degree college without any friends. I lost all the friends I made and I was trying to be comfortable in my own company. That surely doesn’t mean I don’t like people or having friends. I do like hanging out with people and connecting with people. But when it comes to being friends or having friends I always felt alone. For those two years I had no friends and looking back now, I realize I never really had any friends. My friends kept changing over the time or situations. I never had any constant people in my life.

When it comes to ourselves we set a higher standard for ourselves and tend to be much more unforgiving and harsh

The scared and sad little boy still exists as my inner child. I need to become the nurturing and loving parent that my inner child needs. The kind of parent I needed when I was younger. I need to listen to what my inner child is telling me. I need to give it the love and support it needs to feel safe. I need to be there for my inner child. I will be writing more about this as I learn more about my inner child.
