Originaly posted by A Recovered Life
Recognize Your Role
If you let it, anything can be your trigger. A trigger is created when we make a judgment on something in relation to ourselves. For example, a person’s weight becomes triggering if we determine that they are “better” because they weigh less.
Reject the Judgements
Once you realize that you’ve made a judgement and created a trigger, you can correct it. Make a point to contradict unhealthy thinking patterns and replace them with healthy truths.
