Why People Piss You Off
Trigger Me Fancy!
Alrighty, let’s talk triggers and what triggers you.
Firstly, a lot of people have no idea what I’m banging on about when I say triggers (to be fair I think a lot of people have no idea what I’m banging on about full stop).
But a ‘trigger’ is an emotional reaction you have when something spikes the fight or flight response.
It could be a thought you have.
Or it could be something someone else did or said.
And you react with anger, frustration, impatience, defensiveness and a whole plethora of other emotions.
You can be triggered in a positive way as well — but for the sake of this post, we don’t need to worry about that.
We’ve grown up in a world where the words ‘they made me’ get bandied around like depression medication. Absconding you from owning the fact that if there wasn’t a grain of truth or awareness in there, you wouldn’t have reacted like that.
And we’re not talking about force here. That’s a different kettle of fish (who puts fish in kettles anyway? Poor little guys)
So when you get triggered by someone or something else, that’s about YOU!
That’s someone holding a mirror up in your face, you not liking the reflection and getting angry & blaming them for doing that.
It’s your EGO.
And we all do it. I did it yesterday. We can’t handle seeing other people upset our comfort zone and shake up our perspective … so we lash out or withdraw.
And it IS a natural response.
But not when you avoid looking at yourself. You miss out on awesome lessons and insights about who you are … because your negative reactions block it out.
You’re trying to hide from the truth.
But the truth will ALWAYS find you.
ALWAYS through your triggers.
So when you get triggered by someone, go inside yourself & ask ‘why?’ ‘What’s going on in me where I feel inferior, insecure, victimised or unloved?’
And you know what?
That pure honesty with yourself will set you free.
