I tend to second guess myself a lot and I often find myself questioning my own reality. This has led to me feeling really confused and unsure of myself. I know this isn\'t healthy, but I don\'t know how to stop.

Gaslighting yourself is a common defense mechanism that people use to protect themselves from feeling overwhelmed or anxious. If you find yourself constantly questioning your reality, it's important to take a step back and assess the situation. Are you overthinking things? Are you looking at the situation from multiple perspectives? Once you've identified the issue, it's important to address it head-on.
