In order to be the solid object, we need to be aware of our emotional vulnerabilities. What causes us to melt down? I’m going to talk about triggers in a different way than you’re probably used to. What is commonly referred to as a “trigger” is usually just a circumstance, a neutral event. With the exception of a PTSD response, circumstances don’t cause emotions. What does cause the emotional response is the thought that happens after the circumstance.

We have control over our thoughts. In order to reprogram your thoughts, first think of a couple of your most common triggers. What thoughts surface? What might also be true? What do you want to think about that circumstance? Notice your patterns and create new ones. It is possible, but it takes time and practice.

If you would like to talk about where you are, where you want to be, and how we can work together to get there, Contact Us.
