Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse that can be damaging to relationships.
It involves manipulating someone into doubting their own perceptions and memories.
One common gaslighting phrase is 'You're overreacting.'
Another is 'You're being too sensitive.'
Gaslighters may also say things like 'You're crazy' or 'You're imagining things.'
They may deny things they said or did, or accuse their partner of doing things they didn't do.
Other gaslighting phrases include 'You're just trying to start a fight' and 'You're always so negative.'
