People who Can’t Do Better will try to ‘gaslight’ you. They will invent conversations, events claiming you said or did or and don’t remember…
Anything they tell you … whether what you wore on Thursday or said on Tuesday…dismiss.
Never believe them.
They deliberately do this trick to show power.
If you believe them, if you even hesitate, they feel they win. If you argue you are playing into their hands.
If they press, shrug and get away.
