How to Heal and Trust after Being Gaslit

Being gaslit can be a traumatic experience, as it involves manipulation and abuse of your perceptions and memories. It can leave you feeling confused, anxious, and unsure of yourself, and it can be difficult to know how to move forward and rebuild your sense of trust and confidence.


Here are some tips on how to heal and trust after being gaslit:

  1. Seek support from trusted friends and family members. It can be helpful to talk to someone you trust about your experiences, as this can help you process your emotions and get perspective on what happened. Surrounding yourself with supportive people can also help you feel less isolated and more confident in your own thoughts and feelings.

  2. Seek therapy or counseling. Therapy can be an invaluable resource in helping you heal and process your experiences with gaslighting. A therapist can help you work through your emotions, rebuild your sense of self, and develop healthy coping strategies.

  3. Practice self-care and self-compassion. After being gaslit, it is common to feel like you are "going crazy" or that there is something wrong with you. It is important to remember that you are not to blame for the gaslighting, and to practice self-care and self-compassion to help you heal and rebuild your sense of self.

  4. Set healthy boundaries. It is important to establish healthy boundaries with the person who gaslit you and to protect yourself from further manipulation and abuse. This may mean setting limits on your interactions with this person or seeking support from friends or a therapist to help you navigate these boundaries.

  5. Take things one day at a time. Healing from gaslighting can be a long and challenging process, and it is important to be patient with yourself and to take things one day at a time. It may take time to rebuild your trust in yourself and in others, but with time and effort, it is possible to move forward and create a healthy and fulfilling life.
