They try to project emotions and feelings onto you
Projection of emotions and feeling onto someone is also a very common behavior of gaslighters. Manipulations with your feelings can also drive you crazy and that’s exactly what the gaslighter wants from his victim. Do not become anyone’s victim and do not allow other people tell you how you feel. No one knows how your feel and what you think. You are the only person who is aware of your emotions. Gaslighters also like to tell others what people really want and think although they are not even interested to know their victim’s real desires and wishes. Projection is forced into you and gaslighters tend to insists they know it all about your inner world.
