Great post! I’ve had relationships where I was gaslighted each time I spoke up. So I learned to not speak up at all. I was blamed for the dramatic breakups that followed. But, honestly I didn’t want to be hurt all over again by speaking up and then told all my senses and experiences were wrong. I think ‘walking away’ is hard. we all can benefit from people being more honest in relationships. At the same time, it’s also a real process trying to get away from people who are really passive aggressive And deliberately try to hurt you.
