Last week I presented a Magic Monday LIVE on Tiny Triggers.
We all get triggered.
I can deal with the big stuff. It’s the little ones that needle.
Like cheese and onion crisps or bagpipes.
It’s weird that we/you/me let these small inconveniences affect our demeanor.
Like noisy eaters or dog poo.
And even though we know we should just ‘get over it’ it’s tough when you’re in that moment.
Like motorists not indicating or people not saying thank you.
The secret must be to reframe. You and I are as guilty as the next person for creating triggers for others.
Like whistling or saying ‘off of’ instead of just off.
So, why can’t we just accept that we’re all a little bit different and avoid the triggering?
Like people who don’t know the difference between their, they’re and there.
We’re coming to that time of year, where tiny triggers become magnified and sometimes seemingly trivial become gigantic.
The trick is to practice not reacting to the tiny triggers now, so when the big ones pop up you don’t react.
What are your tiny triggers? Please leave them below.
But, don’t you dare give me cheese and onion crisps for Christmas 😆.
