“Those do not care about your well being. They don’t care how much they’re hurting you. They wont care if they scar you permanently. They’ll take as much as they can for you, and abandon you when you need them the most.”
This is very true. Gaslighting is especially common among narcissistic personalities. Often they are hardest on the people in their lives who dare call them out on their cruelty or who point out the things they’ve done that have been unhealthy and hurtful. Often times, when it is a parent, they will single out one of their own kids to be the brunt of their abuse and brand another “their golden child,” imposing a blatant double-standard. Gaslights one, adores the other.
