My Triggers are My Pets Triggers: Those sights, sounds, actions, smells, words, etc. that are connected to an automatic internal response born of trauma. An example: perhaps a typical term of endearment such as, “come here baby”, was spoken as the perpetrator approached you. Internally you had a sense of revulsion and fear. If today you hear those words, no matter the context, you automatically feel the sense of revulsion and fear. That is a trigger. Part of the conquering process includes identifying those triggers. Then comes the hard work of taking them down; because if you don’t, you sabotage your healing and cripple your relationships.
