One of the things I’ve been thinking about lately is triggers. I’ve read that emotional triggers can be something you see, smell, touch, taste or hear. I know this is the case, but I also think situations can trigger responses too.
Because everyone is different, obviously different things will trigger you. The Oracle at Delphi said, “Know Thyself.” And I know that in knowing yourself, you can really relate to others in a much truer way.
When triggers happen, you may react differently than you normally would. You may react bigger, or against your true nature. However, the way that triggers work, is based on emotional feelings from something in the past. The situation itself may not be good, or it may be better than you think. I do know though, that when these triggers come up, you need to examine them by yourself, and decide how to either avoid the triggers, or the right way to deal with them that will eventually empower yourself. I think the trick here is to ‘rescue’ yourself, because as adults, we can do that.
Here’s hoping that what triggers you, is something good, with great outcomes.
