Read this extremely important! Does your super Catholic group or church do this to you? Do they make you doubt what you firmly believe? Do they make you doubt what you’ve always believed? Do they make you doubt the good that you do? do they demote your self-esteem?Its gaslighting . @ USCCB needs to do something about these type of cult weirdo people and a statement needs to be made about these abusive groups.

Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation in which a person or a group covertly sows seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or group, making them question their own memory, perception, or judgment, often evoking in them cognitive dissonance and other changes including low self-esteem. Using denial, misdirection, contradiction, and misinformation, gaslighting involves attempts to destabilizethe victim and delegitimize the victim’s beliefs. Instances can range from the denial by an abuserthat previous abusive incidents occurred, to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim.

The term originated from the British play Gas Light (1938, but originally performed as Angel Street in the United States) and its 1940 and 1944 film adaptations (both titled Gaslight). The term has been used in clinical psychological literature,[1][2] as well as in political commentary and philosophy.[3]


I have lived here in the Tampa Bay area for over 51 years. I am a native of New York. I’m 57. The purpose of this blog is to show what it is like to live here and not vacation . This is Florida’s Daily life. Paradise has “moments” too. This blog attempts to reflect my Catholic Christian faith with balance and sunshine and a crack at holy humor. I have a real sense of humor. It is hot here .
