If You’ve Been Gaslighted, You Know How This Feels

I think I love you, I say,

and he turns on the gaslight.

He makes me think of it all differently.

The Polaroid of my naked body was a bookmark

and he just used me to find his place.

Our slow dancing in the kitchen was because of the music,

not because he wanted to keep me close.

I see it clearly now.

I look at the ceiling,

the light above the stove

and wonder if it feels burnt out too.


Brianna Wiest’s new book, The Mountain Is You, offers a life-changing strategy for transforming self-sabotage into self-mastery. In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.


“Brianna’s book is a beautiful expression of healing. Her insights on self-sabotage, emotional intelligence, and deep transformation are invaluable. She understands that change begins with self, and her book is a gift to the collective.”
