Q & A – My father has trained me to doubt my thoughts?

It sounds like you may have experienced gaslighting from your father, which can be a form of emotional abuse. Gaslighting involves manipulating someone to question their own reality, thoughts, and feelings, and can lead to self-doubt and low self-esteem.

If you feel that your father has trained you to doubt your thoughts and feelings, it is important to seek support from a trusted friend, family member, or mental health professional. You may need help to regain your sense of self and to learn how to trust your own perceptions and experiences.

One way to start overcoming the effects of gaslighting is to begin to identify and challenge the negative self-talk and self-doubt that you may be experiencing. It can also be helpful to validate your own experiences by seeking out evidence that supports your thoughts and feelings, and to surround yourself with people who believe and support you.

It may also be necessary to set boundaries with your father or to limit contact if the gaslighting behavior continues. It is important to prioritize your own mental and emotional well-being and to take steps to protect yourself from further emotional abuse.

Remember that healing from gaslighting takes time and effort, but with the right support and resources, it is possible to overcome the effects of emotional abuse and to regain a sense of self-worth and confidence.
