Word of the Day Wednesday: Gaslighting

According to Urban Dictionary, gaslighting is,

A form of intimidation or psychological abuse, sometimes called Ambient Abuse where false information is presented to the victim, making them doubt their own memory, perception and quite often, their sanity.

See you next Wednesday where I will present a new word that catches my attention.

*I saw the word gaslighting in a Twitter conversation regarding feminism and I was so intrigued I had to look it up!*

I love reading about everything. I'm not a book snob. Lately I have been "reading" a lot of picture books to my toddler and baby. In my past life before motherhood, I was a professional technical editor and writer.

  1. If you want to understand what it’s like to be gaslit, listen to the song “Pale Shelter” by TFF. It’s basically the subject matter. Just a little tidbit.

    Cool series, by the way.
