I've just seen this, a tweet where Ghosting is referred to as a form of gaslighting, and it's getting to me.
Gaslighting is a form of abuse that, used enough, can have real and severe lasting consequences.
Ghosting is the immediate and total severing a relationship, which you might not like and may find difficult to deal with, but you also have no automatic right to people's time or attention.
Misrepresentation of gaslighting is happening a LOT lately.
@sophia Couldn't agree more. It's something I've seen on the rise for the last few years and it really fucking makes me angry. Thanks for speaking out.
I've never experienced gaslighting first hand, but I've dealt with the impact second hand; and seeing someone you love have no concept of what is real and what isn't, is truly horrifying. I'm sorry you've been there yourself.
