Response to applegrove (Original post)

1. My father was a big gaslighter.

My mother deferred. My siblings deferred. I pushed back and was made a pariah in my own family by our father. While I suffered, it was the healthiest, the sanest thing I could have done.

My father was controlling and an authoritarian and gaslighting was one technique he used to keep dissent and independence to a minimum.
