Why are so many people unfamiliar with the signs of verbal and emotional abuse?

You just never really know that the person you may be sitting with and having a fun conversation with is actually suffering inside. Gaslighters never actually  compliment someone unless there is an insult tied to it. An example would be, “I like your dress, it almost fits you.” It’s the  compliment-insult, or complisult. When the victim starts trusting them again, the gaslighter, hits them with an insult. The insult is letting the victim know where they stand with them, which is beneath him so pay attention to every word someone says to someone else. One witness is better than no witness at all.


Familiar or unfamiliar with it, most witnesses 

don't give it a thought or even question why a person is treating and saying things to another person in a way that would hurt you if someone you cared about said it to you.
