    S2EP9 Self Gaslighting

    S2EP9 Self Gaslighting

    Kelly is peeling back the layers of self-deception to uncover the subtle yet pervasive behavior of self-gaslighting. Whether it's downplaying emotions, invalidating personal experiences, or blaming oneself for uncontrollable events, she’s exploring the reasons behind this self-sabotaging behavior.

    Discover how coping mechanisms, low self-esteem, avoidance of conflict, fear of rejection, and external influences can lead us to betray our own truths. With vulnerability and insight, Kelly examines the impact of societal norms and personal anecdotes, including a candid recount of a recent encounter with sexism that left her questioning her own experiences. 

    This episode is not just an exploration—it's a call to action for increased self-awareness and the rebuilding of self-trust. Kelly provides you with thought-provoking prompts to help identify and address self-gaslighting, all with the goal of fostering healthier self-relationships. 

    Main Takeaways:


    Understanding self-gaslighting and its origins


    Coping mechanisms and how they contribute to self-gaslighting


    The role of self-esteem and societal pressures in self-deception


    Strategies for recognizing and combating self-gaslighting behaviors



    Thought Prompts for Reflection:

    The first: Ask yourself, "Do I often dismiss or invalidate my own emotions and experiences?" Reflect on moments when you've felt upset, hurt, or frustrated and consider how you've responded to those feelings. Do you tend to downplay your emotions, tell yourself you're overreacting, or convince yourself that you shouldn't feel a certain way? Recognizing patterns of invalidation can be a crucial step in identifying self-gaslighting behaviors.

    The second.  Consider your internal dialogue and self-talk. Ask yourself, "Do I frequently criticize or blame myself for things that are beyond my control?" Pay attention to the language you use when talking to yourself. Do you often engage in negative self-talk, berate yourself for perceived mistakes, or hold yourself to impossibly high standards? Reflecting on the tone and content of your self-talk can reveal whether you're engaging in self-gaslighting by internalizing blame or devaluing your worth.

    The third.  Do a little Reality check: Reflect on instances where you've questioned your own perception of reality or doubted your memory. Ask yourself, "Have I ever found myself doubting my own thoughts, feelings, or memories?" Look at situations where others have challenged your version of events or made you question your own sanity. Reflect on whether you've ever second-guessed yourself or deferred to others' interpretations of reality, even when your own experiences tell you otherwise. Recognizing moments of self-doubt and uncertainty can be indicative of self-gaslighting tendencies.
