I can’t help but look!

Sometimes I can’t help but stare when I come across a great big turd on the ground. I wonder if this pathetic tweet (one of many) is just a small example of “gaslighting.” By distracting me, the writer attempts to scramble my sense of reality. Even if I think what someone says is total bullshit, I fall into the trap of not looking where I should look while watching the writer’s BS statements bounce around in the media. 

According to Psychology Today, “Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes victims question their reality.” The article where this definition appears describes eleven warning signs that you’re the victim of gaslighting. It’s scary how perfectly these warning signs align with the communication approaches of our current president!

  1. Once again, spot on! Read the article, and it is scary. Too bad we can’t easily remove a President who is obviously mentally challenged and truly mentally ill…and just out and out mean.🤬
