And they do begin to have symptoms of mental illness because being abused and then gaslit is so traumatic– and then the community just takes that as evide

When you are ready, I strongly advise making a detailed report to the agency that licenses mental health professionals in your state. If enough people send in complaints, a case can be made.

Pema Chödrön on Trungpa in 2011: “I Can’t Answer the Relative Questions” QuoteChödrön’s “I don’t know” carries a further charge.
