WHAT TRIGGERS YOUR EMOTIONS? (Self Awareness is the key) you must pay attention to your feelings, so you can take responsibility for them by changing your thoughts to more positive thoughts. Remember sometimes our feelings lie to us, just because you perceive something in your mind does not mean it is true...or that the person meant it the way you perceived it. If you are right you can still tell yourself how to feel and get your peace back. Change your thinking for the sake of your mental health. Your mental health must be a priority to you.(peace of mind) you Choose. Enjoy the good emotions and acknowledge all of your feelings.
The strengths that have helped you to succeed are also your greatest emotional triggers when you feel someone is not honoring what makes you special.
When your brain perceives that someone has taken or plans to take one of these important things away from you, then your emotions are triggered.
You react with anger or fear, then you quickly rationalize your behavior so it makes sense. You may lose trust in the person or situation. You may lose courage or react in a way that could hurt your relationships in the future.
THE KEY IS TO CATCH YOURSELF REACTING WHEN YOUR EMOTIONS ARE TRIGGERED.
Then you can discover if the threat is real or not.
