Understanding Your Triggers

I saw a post one day that said, “no one is responsible for your triggers except for you.” It is the responsibility of each individual to get to know themselves and the things that make them tick. Also recognizing when a situation could possibly set you off and choosing to walk away. We’ve talked about this before where I say, take yourself out on a date or pick up a hobby. Dealing with trauma and triggers can’t be found/solved that way. It’s going to take some prayer, reading, and a whole lot of soul-searching to figure out why we do what we do.

A trigger is just a reaction toward an action or remark. Usually it’s a negative reaction brought on by a painful memory or feeling. If there is something I know could bring up some stuff I stay away from it. I can compartmentalize situations until I can deal with it in a healthy and rational way. Beware of who you talk to about your issues too. Some people only want to know so they can use it against you.


Thank you so much for sticking with me! I know it can feel rushed at times and that’s because most of the time it is. I’m evaluating my schedule now and trying to find my happy medium. Anyway have a great week, you got this!
