 gaslightingGaslighting is a colloquialism that is loosely defined as making someone question their reality. The term is also used informally to describe someone (a 'gaslighter') who persistently puts forth a false narrative which leads another person (or a group of people) to doubt their own perceptions to the extent that they become disoriented and distressed. This dynamic is generally only possible when the audience is vulnerable such as in unequal power relationships or when the audience is fearful of the losses associated with challenging the false narrative. Gaslighting is not necessarily malicious or intentional, although in some cases it is. [from Wikipedia]
 helpingFrom WordNet: give help or assistance, be of service. Examples: Everyone helped out during the earthquake. Can you help me carry this table? She never helps around the house.
