Anything, as an act or event, that serves as a stimulus and initiates or precipitates a reaction or series of reactions.
Its good to look at what triggers you. If you don’t you will walk through life taking offense where there is not reason to take offense. When you take things personal your actions are not always in the best interest of yourself or the person you are speaking to. When we become aware then we can accept and then we then can take action. My next podcasts will be on the those 3 A’s.
How you know you are triggered is you are holding on to the conversations or actions that were taken and not easily able to let go of the dis-empowering conversations you are having. If you feel like firing someone you may be triggered. One way I use to discover if I’m off or not taking when I take someone’s actions or sayings personal. I have several coaches on hand that I can call. They are listening fo me to be free, not to be right and buy my story. Sometimes they point out things I don’t want to hear.
A red flag is I’m not at peace and want to make someone wrong. That is an indication I’m taking something personally. I can rely on that whatever got triggered at the moment, isn’t the incident or person. The incident or person happened and the trigger is always from a past incident. When I can get to the source of the trigger I can be responsible for my reactions and then make intelligent mature decisions on how to handle the situation. If it’s a big trigger I pray and take three days to reflect. I also go for coaching immediately. Coaches carefully picked that are reliable to not buy my story but come from a commitment that I get to the source of my own reactions so I can take effective actions to resolve whatever happened. I can’t rely on my thinking at the moment.
Go for it! I want on my grave stone she burned out instead of rusted out! What do you want them to say about you?
Ask yourself are your actions and speaking in alignment with what you are committed to? Look at what are the habitual patterns that have that commitment thwarted? Are you willing to take responsibility for when it doesn’t go that way you want or the way you expected and clean up your part? Are you willing to let go of Expectations of yourself and others? What are you not being truthful about to yourself and others.
Our thoughts can be like a junk drawer-we need to take inventory and get rid of what is not useful! (wendy b)
