You're in the Understanding Phase
You know or are pretty convinced that you're in a toxic relationship with a narcissist, whether it's a romantic one, a family one or a friend or coworker one. You are pretty sure you've got to leave, or you've already left, but you feel stuck and you can't seem to break free.

You might already know all about gaslighting, but that's just one way that narcissists manipulate people. Here are a few others.

Can you show me an example of real-life gaslighting?
I don't usually share many personal stories about the gaslighting I have experienced in my life but recently, a well-known narcissist actually gave me a little bit of an unrealized opportunity by actually gaslighting me online.
Oh yea. Online.
