A form of mental abuse in which information is twisted or spun, selectively omitted to favor the abuser, or false information is presented with the intent of making the victim and onlookers doubt the victims own memory, perception, and sanity.
A form of psychological manipulation that seeks to make another person believe that he or she is crazy. A tactic used to discredit a human being by making others think that they are crazy.
Abusers will use this technique while remaining calm and in control, in order to make the victim feel even more confused and perplexed. If they succeed in this, they can then grandstand by saying, “See, you are crazy and out of control.”
Abuse is not love. I believe you.
