Triggering happens! You’re just innocently going about your day, engaged in meaningful, present time activities, when suddenly, BLAM! Your trigger goes off, and your connection with the present is replaced by a state of unconscious reactivity in which you totally confuse the present and the past.

- Figure out who to blame for triggering you and blame them thoroughly.
- Just don’t be reactive; stop being triggerable already!
