Going For The Gotcha: The Big Damaging Difference Between Verifying and Validating Your Partner

Are you wrong every time you turn around? Does your partner–or mother–have to win in every conversation? Someone who has to be right all the time is verifying, not validating. That can not only be infuriating and frustrating, it’s nasty! Sound familiar? Is there someone in your life who always thinks they have the facts. They remember events better than you. Know what you should do?That’s gaslighting! When another person wants to define your reality for you–tell you what you want, think, need, feel, remember, that’s gaslighting. They want to be in control of your experiences and responses in life, and that is taking away a basic right you have!
