What is a trigger? What can I do when I am triggered? How can I support my spouse when they are triggered?
Today we discuss triggers and how healthily handling them can lead to restoration. At the beginning of our healing process, triggers overwhelmed us and sent us spiraling and fighting, leaving us confused and disconnected. We found that we can react four different ways to triggers: suppress them, medicate them, unhealthily let them lead us or healthily process them in a way that leads to growth.
In this episode, we get raw and real again as we share stories and personal examples of how we miserably failed at times and eventually how we learned to support one another through being triggered. We hope that as you listen, you identify what you can do to healthily process a trigger and help your spouse as they go through triggers as well.
