Followed by her spam texting (damn lawyers are WORDY!) trying to get me back for two days (over 100 texts!). And then a couple of attempts to suck me back in like nothing happened.
Monday she even sent a non-apology apology (amazing for a woman lawyer really) wanting to try again…
I replied to this one, told her, thanks but I’m moving on and blocked her.
I realized I got sucked into trying to ‘fix’ her problems, and a lot of them were eerily like Crazy’s problems.
As part of this package of attempts by the Russian lawyer was some gaslighting. She was acting as if nothing had happened. In reality, it did happen. My ex had habit of rewriting history, but being of a disciplined mind it was mostly ineffective. The question is, do women even realize that they are gaslighting? Or do the emotions (and/or craziness) get the best of them such they disgorge a reality that clearly wasn’t?
As for the fellas, perhaps when they gaslight it is a deliberate act. They realize that they are doing it. Often they have honed the technique.
So is this somewhat simple model too simple? How close is it to being accurate?
Exit question: What is the path to craziness?
