Gaslighting Quotes by Ross Rosenberg

Gaslighting is a manipulative mind and behavior control strategy perpetrated by highly manipulative pathological narcissists who desire power and control over weak and defenseless victims. These predators prey on susceptible individuals who believe in their false altruism, affection and promises of protection. Gaslighters are most successful when they believably cast themselves as loyal and dutiful protectorates who are unconditionally invested in defending and caring for their beloved gaslit victims.

Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome (NAS) is a chronic pattern of physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse that is perpetrated by a pathological narcissist against weak and more vulnerable victims. NAS victims are typically, weak or weakened, who lack confidence, self-esteem and social supports. Such individuals are often considered to be codependent or have Self-Love Deficit Disorder™.

Like pedophiles seeking to sexually abuse children, Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome perpetrators have a “nose" for codependent victims who are naturally unable to recognize their scheming and highly manipulative ways.

The most potent form of Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome entrapment comes from a sustained brainwashing and/or gaslighting campaign perpetrated by the pathological narcissist against the fragile and vulnerable codependent victim.

Gaslighters achieve control over their victims by systematically manipulating the environment so that distress is experienced over an implanted problem(s) that either was only mildly problematic or never existed. Because victims are coerced into believing their inculcated problems are real, and shown repeated proof of their escalation, they begin to increasingly identify with and succumb to the implanted, progressive nature. As the problems and consequent feelings of hopelessness escalate, gaslighters then further instill insecurities and paranoid feelings and thoughts. The methodical barrage of implanted narratives eventually glues the victims to their problems, and consequently manifests as long-term hopelessness, powerlessness and shame.

These predators prey on susceptible individuals who believe in their false altruism, affection and promises of protection. Gaslighters are most successful when they believably cast themselves as loyal and dutiful protectorates who are unconditionally invested in defending and caring for their beloved gaslit victims.

Secrecy Requirement: gaslighting can only work if the victim is manipulated into a covenant of secrecy. Such is implemented when the victim is convinced that the outside world, or formerly trusted people, have a vested interest in hurting them.

Gaslighting victims are rendered helpless when they are indoctrinated to be hopeless over the highly upsetting problem about which the gaslighter keeps reminding them.

They seize upon anyone in any given crowd who appears isolated from others or whose loved ones, despite their protective and loving pronouncements, are uninterested in them and absent.

Brainwashing and gaslighting are one of many tactics used in Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome. Gaslighting is an insidious mind control method that pathological narcissists covertly use on vulnerable codependents they desire to control and dominate.

Once in the “soulmate fog,” the codependents invite the perpetrators into their vulnerable areas—physical and emotional—where the scheming pathological narcissists take up permanent residence.

In terms of gaslighting, I define it as “to implant false and/or distorted narratives that are specially designed or formulated to manipulate a person into a destructive web of deception, loss of control, and the surrender of personal freedom and beliefs of self-worth, self-value, self-esteem, and productivity.”
