Let’s talk about Emotional Triggers and what they are…
We all know the phrase “Don’t Get Triggered!”
If you spend any time around teenagers and kids as I do with my own kids, then it’ll be a phrase you hear a lot.
But outside of just a way for kids to rile each other up, it’s interesting that this word and idea has started to appear in their vocabulary. People getting triggered and feeling negative emotions certainly wasn’t anything taken seriously when I was their age and it’s great to see that these ideas for negative emotions having a negative impact on people’s lives and the awareness of that becoming such a common turn of phrase.
In this episode, I want to explore what being triggered means and how it’s a great word to explain what we’ve been talking about so far when we refer to negative emotional reactions to past events (getting triggered).
