I was desperate for help and searched the internet for answers. I came across the word gaslighting. So, THIS is what I’ve been experiencing in my marriage for 26 years and there is a name for it?! It was literally a mind-blowing revelation for me. From the BTR website, I went on a podcast binge and listened to everything I could get my hands on. The fog of gaslighting began to lift and with the help of one of the coaches, I gained the courage to set some significant and appropriate boundaries. Honestly, I thought I had a pretty good handle on the subject and didn’t expect to learn much more. Was I ever wrong! What I thought I knew about gaslighting was only a drop in the bucket.
I just happened to find the BTR podcast in the midst of finding out my spouse had been lying and cheating again, actually number 6 that I know of. The deepest darkest moment of my life. Words can’t express how listening to the podcast truly saved my life. It made me feel like there are others out there, I wasn’t alone. The words of encouragement, education, support, and knowing that the situation was for real and I wasn’t crazy was so comforting. After searching the BTR site, I noticed services were offered that could help even further. I decided now was the time and signed up. Words truly can’t express how this experience helped in my life.
I was told about my husband’s sexual addiction in 2015. We sought professional help right away and he seemed to be in recovery, but it wasn’t until the summer of 2018 when I discovered BTR that I finally heard someone describe what I was living through as gaslighting and that there was something I could do about it. After listening to the BTR podcast, I realized that my husband had not been sober and that I had been emotionally abused. Then during a critical period, just before my husband moved to actively cast me off and discard our marriage and during the period when he was rapidly ramping up abusive behaviors, the BTR coaches were there with me with incredible empathy and profound insight. In a few hours, they validated my pain and taught me more about gaslighting than most people would know in a lifetime. They helped equip me to manage a situation that was about to rapidly unfold. Unlike beginning with a new therapist, I didn’t have to spend hours giving background because these women already understood what was going on in my heart and in my home. Gaslighting, DARVO, and emotional abuse were huge topics that had NOT been addressed in traditional counseling. The podcast covered topics that I found extremely helpful. I listened, pausing, jotting notes, then printing the transcripts of some episodes. This material deeply resonated with me and I used parts of it as a script to identify what I needed for safety. Thank you for what you do. You are making a difference.
