Any conversation where you continue to push to have your experience, feelings, or opinions noted as the only objective truth can at the very least feel like gaslighting. It usually doesn't feel good when someone is aggressively trying to persuade or convince you of something. Your partner will likely feel unheard, misunderstood, and maybe even skeptical of your intentions because of the intensity of your insistence.16 April 2022
