Do you ever wonder why an event or behavior can trigger one person and that same event or behavior has absolutely no impact on another? Do you find that whenever you are activated, reactive or upset that you tend to blame another person or circumstance? The reality is that the reason we get triggered is that there is some emotional wound within us that is getting activated. Have you ever noticed that one parent can get upset by something that a child says or does and the other parent is not bothered by it at all? Again, the parent that is being triggered is upset because it is activating something within that parent. The goal is to go inward whenever we feel triggered and heal that part of us that is wounded.
“Whatever is triggering you is on you.” ~ Richie Norton
