Do you feel like you’re getting triggered easily?

Let’s discover how you can NOT be triggered as easily as you think you can…!
It may change everything for you so, buckle up!!
What You Will Learn...
It’s always the same…
We always get triggered in the same situations…
It can be:
- When your mom says that “you shouldn’t think of changing careers”
- When a colleague has always something to say about a presentation you made
- When your partner repeats himself about you not making dinner…
These situations are just examples for you to start by realizing what kind of situation you think you feel triggered in!
So, ask yourself: What are situations you feel like it’s always the same and you feel a lot of emotions in that specific situation?
This is step number one! 🙂
The simple and fast way is to just STOP before reacting!
It may sound too simple to be true but it is true: The way to break the cycle of someone telling you something and you having lots of emotion is to STOP at the moment you are in the situation.
At first, it won’t be easy. You’re going to want to react, feel justified to react because that’s what you always have done!!
But what if something else is possible for you?
You do NOT have to change that other person, they can continue making their comments and sharing their opinion.
What IS in your control is how you decide to respond, WHO you decide to be in that moment.
Let’s rehearse now. Let’s do this from the prefrontal cortex which is the part of your brain that can make decisions and isn’t in survival mode (in opposition to the side of your brain that has primitive survival instincts).
Close your eyes and imagine yourself being in that situation of “getting triggered” easily.
What is happening in this situation? What is being said in general?
How do you want to react, WHO do you want to be?
The question now is: WHO do you want to be from now on in that same situation?
It could be:
- Taking a deep breath and smiling
- Answer a very neutral sentence such as “Ah yes…”
- Listen to that person and just smile
To go further, you can think now of what’s the intention of that person making this comment.
When you put yourself into this person’s shoes, you often will be curious and find compassion for them.
We get triggered because we make it mean something about us, we take it personally when actually, it’s rarely really about us…
It’s always about the person making that comment! 🙂
So, when you look at it this way, you won’t take is so personally anymore…!
Try it out! 😉
This is THE SIMPLE WAY to stop getting triggered as much as you did until today.
It’s simple and it works.
Take it one day at a time and please, report back!! 🙂
