How Gaslighting Is Abuse That Stays with You Like a Terrifying Hurricane

How Gaslighting Is Abuse That Stays with You Like a Terrifying Hurricane | Kinsanity | Scoop.it
Have you ever experienced gaslighting? It's an abuse tactic that makes you doubt your own memory. In this chilling performance, Tatyana Brown captures how the impact can stick with you many years later.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Toxic relationships are full of gaslighting, which is as much designed to make you feel crazy as it is to make you look crazy - which renders any complaints to others mute.

Living with & Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder

Living with & Loving Someone with Borderline Personality Disorder | Kinsanity | Scoop.it

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. ~Mark Twain 

 

We are a psychologically sophisticated society. Emotional difficulties are now shared openly — not only by celebrities but by your average person. It’s not unusual for people to tell friends that they have an anxiety disorder, anger management problem, depression,panic attacks, phobias, eating disorder, substance abuse problem,OCD or ADD.

 

Yet, there is a widespread psychological disorder that most people know little or nothing about. Why? Because its symptoms are largely interpersonal, causing many to view it as a relationship issue, not a mental health one. Also, people shy away from the term because of its unflattering name: Borderline Personality Disorder.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

I find this article more than a bit misleading as it does not identify how truly rare Borderline Personality Disorder is; that said, the article does break things down easily -- so easily, in fact, these are decent relationship tips for many relationships.

A 4-Year-Old Girl Asked A Lesbian If She's A Boy. She Responded The Awesomest Way Possible.

Ash Beckham is awesome. She also happens to be gay, and she thinks it's hard for straight people coming out of the closet.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

This not just about being gay -- it's about the hard conversations we all face, the fact that not having those conversations is killing us, that living with any sorts of stress and fear is being closet.

People Who Can't Control Themselves Control The People Around Them

People Who Can't Control Themselves Control The People Around Them | Kinsanity | Scoop.it

When people can't modulate their own anxieties and insecurities, one partner's options and priorities are sacrificed on the alter of the other's fears, whether those options are a new baby, a new job, or new sexual behavior. You also fear that if your partner doesn't need you, because he or she can take care of himself/herself, then he or she wouldn't want you or choose you. This makes you fear your partner becoming more emotionally autonomous as much as you fear it in yourself.

You see this culturally too, in politics.
