This weeks post will be brief as I am giving you, the reader, a link to a recent Huffington Post article written by Yashar Ali – a man who has women’s well being at heart! The title of this article is “A Message to Women From A Man: You Are Not “Crazy“.
You will find a well written insightful article that explains something that Yashar calls “gaslighting”. This term, used by mental health professionals, explains a form of emotional manipulation “to describe manipulative behavior used to confuse people into thinking their reactions are so far off base that they’re crazy.” This most often happens to women, but everyone experiences a form of it at times in their life.
As women it is important that we understand and be aware of anything that may take our voice away. That has the potential to diminish the authentic expression of who we are. One more awareness to leave any remnants of “victim” behind.
Your comments would be appreciated as we learn from each others stories!
