Are you triggered?

Do you get triggered? 

Do you feel out of control or explosive in response to someone else’s actions? 

Today, I wanted to share with you what I’ve been learning with the incredible Gabor Mate.

I’ve created an amazing space inside the Sistahood where women can be truly vulnerable and share their stories but my therapy friends kept warning me over and over that the women might get triggered by this experience. 

I don’t believe in triggers. 

I don’t think we CAN trigger people. 

That’s passing your power and responsibility onto someone else and it’s the nature of living in victimhood. 

I don’t ever want to live there!

I’m saying this to you with firsthand experience of trauma. I used to be explosive and intensely angry. BUT I did the hard work and put in so much effort to heal. 

You need to work out WHY you’re an explosive weapon that can be triggered. It is your responsibility. 

Commit to this self exploration and you WILL find your power. 

You’ve got this!
