Angela and I have been married for nearly 10 years, we know how certain things can trigger us just like anyone else. We have learned how to identify each other's triggers so that we can avoid them or handle them better. After all being triggered is not just for people with PTSD, if that were true it won't be such a faux pas to bring up religion or politics at a dinner party.

It's important to note that triggers can be different for everyone. What might be a trigger for one person may not be for another. Thus, it's crucial to communicate with each other and understand what our triggers are to avoid causing unnecessary harm or distress.

Having empathy for someone means that we don't want to cause them pain, even if we think that their pain over something seemingly small or trivial is unwarranted. We recognize that our words or actions can have a significant impact on each other's emotional well-being, and we strive to be mindful of this in our interactions.

We both recognize that knee-jerk reactions are a natural response to certain stimuli. However, we've learned to control our reactions and be mindful of the impact our words and actions can have on each other. We prioritize active listening and empathy in our communication to create a safe and supportive environment for each other.

At the end of the day, triggers can be intense emotional responses to certain stimuli, and it's crucial to be aware of them and respect each other's boundaries. By doing so, we can avoid causing harm or discomfort and continue to grow in our relationship.
