Publisher's Summary

A co-worker sarcastically mentions that you’re not contributing enough to the big project. When you get offended, they say they were just joking and that you’re too sensitive.

Your mother constantly criticizes your weight. When you bring up her comments around other people, she denies ever saying them and says you are making up stories.

Have you repeatedly found yourself in these types of situations, where you end up doubting yourself?

They might have occurred with different people, in different circumstances, but the way they make you feel is the same.

Your feelings are trivialized, your thoughts are manipulated, and your reality is denied.

When this is done to you repeatedly, you begin to feel confused or even crazy. You are left questioning your own reality and sanity.

These are classic signs that you’re being gaslighted, and it’s something to take very seriously.

Gaslighting is a covert form of abuse that affects your confidence and trust in yourself, which the abuser then takes advantage of to keep you under their control.

Whether it’s a spouse, parent, or co-worker, it’s hard to break loose from the grip of a gaslighting manipulator.

You will need to know how gaslighters operate, how their behavior is affecting you, and how you can reclaim your truth.

In Gaslighting & Narcissistic Abuse Recovery, you will discover:

  • The tactics gaslighters employ 
  • How to hold on to your grip on reality 
  • Powerful ways to respond to gaslighters 
  • Why self-care is a critical component in coping with abuse 
  • The shift in mindset to help you finally gain the courage to escape an abusive relationship 
  • What you need to do after leaving a gaslighting relationship 
  • How to rebuild your sense of self 
  • And much more

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Learn to set boundaries

While going through my divorce, I learned a lot from this audiobook. I can confidently claim that the writers, as well as One's Mom Battle on Facebook, helped me stay grounded and learn how to set the necessary boundaries.

Eye-opening

Victims' physical and psychological scars are left behind by the kind of trauma they have experienced. Imagine giving everything you have to another, only to be left with nothing but a shell of yourself.

Guide to recovery

This audiobook's guide to recovery appeals to me greatly. Many of the support groups I've attended appear to harbor a lot of anger, bitterness, and disappointment, and they inspire people to use those feelings to fuel their lives rather than heal.

Best book ever in this topic

This book is without doubt the best book I have read so far in this topic. The combination themes of gaslighting and narcissism is totally appropriate as they often go hand in hand. Very clear and helpful advise and guidance for a path out of this trap. I will be listening more than once.
