Anyone who has ever been gaslit will remember the feeling. Wondering whether you might be overreacting after all. The self-doubt over what—until just now—you absolutely knew to be true. Perhaps you are a crazy psycho bitch and have misread the situation? Maybe you do overthink. Is it all in your head?

It seems more of us want the answers to these questions than ever. American dictionary Merriam-Webster has just made gaslighting its word of the year after searches rose by 1,740% in the last 12 months, and it was looked up multiple times, every single day. The dictionary broadly defines gaslighting as “the act or practice of grossly misleading someone, especially for one’s own advantage.”
