What is a trigger?
Triggers are people, words, opinions, situations, or environmental situations that provoke an intense and excessive emotional reaction within us. Common emotions that we experience while being triggered include anger, rage, sadness, and fear. Virtually anything can trigger us, a trigger depends on the experience.
Why do we get triggered?
2 main reasons
Trauma –We get triggered when we see, hear, taste, touch, or smell something that reminds us of the previous traumatic circumstance. For example, a rape victim might be triggered when they see a person with a beard bc their attacker had a beard. An adult who never fit in as a child may feel triggered when seeing groups of people have fun.
Ego preservation – The ego is the sense of self or “I” we carry around. When our egos are challenged or hurt by others, we are prone to becoming triggered – immediately.
In part two of Nikeeta’s Ilhan thoughts, she explains why Zionism is anything but a radical liberation movement.
Smash, Marry, Exile
Money and Nikeeta play a familiar game.
