Triggers Suck!

Sometimes you’re washing the dishes and your mind wonders to that place where the hurt happened. And you replay it in your head.

Or you could be driving and one thought goes to another and another and then you go to the hurt and then another hurt and maybe another, depending on how many you’ve experienced.

You replay the whole scenario again. What was done, what was said, what you saw, how you felt, parties involved.

Or you could be listening to a song, or a podcast episode, or watching a movie, even reading a book, and a similar situation is being talked about, so of course you relate because you’ve been through it. And you go back to that place of hurt.

A certain song you no longer listen to because it reminds you of the person, or place, or situation .

Triggers Suck!

And when the wound is deep the hurt is deep.

Process through the hurt, work through the hurt, talk through the hurt, write through the hurt, cry through the hurt.

Don’t put a time limit through the hurt. There’s no time limit to healing.

But healing is attainable.
