When Trigggers are Overwhelming

I know my triggers and I’m really good at avoiding them whenever possible, but lately I’ve noticed three things that have become quite overwhelming:

  1. I have started to recognize situations that at first glance seem to be nothing more than small annoyances but are rapidly turning into new triggers.

    Great post as always!

    I’m triggered by people more than anything else. I’ve come to the decision (as unpopular and controversial as it may be in my family) that I no longer will spend time around these relatives/former friends as long as I feel this way. Gone are my co-dependent, people-pleasing ways. It comes across as sounding selfish, but I’ve been treated horribly by these people although everyone but me minimizes their bulls*t. I’m the one who was traumatized.

    My mental stability is far more important than their feelings. It feels good to have the ability to say that I won’t spend time with toxic people who make me feel sick.

    can totally relate. but u know what the only way to get over these triggers is to get through them. its very brave of u not to turn to addictions and lose yourself. what ive learnt s that trigger is that piled up unresolved emotions. after the very painful trigger stage is over, a slighter one will be there and then u can with effort easily change your beliefs which basically say that feelings are to be controlled. That way we can feel our feelings, make love to our souls and return to peace.Amen
