Do I trigger you? Do you have a person you know who triggers you?
Does it piss you off when we post photos of traveling and having fun with friends?
Do you have feelings of anger or jealousy when we share what’s going well for us in our lives?
Do you start to feel bad about yourself and your life?
Is this blog post annoying you?
It’s ok. I have those feelings too. We all do because the thing is, we’re all spiritual beings having a human experience and as human beings we have egos and our egos sometimes get triggered. It’s how you react to the triggering that makes all the difference.
I’ve shared photos like this one on social media:
I have gotten comments like this…
“Don’t you work at all?”
“Must be nice to have your husband support you while you have fun frolicking all of the world.”
“What do you even do to have the money to travel to these places? You must be a drug smuggler or something.”
“You’re just lucky. I’m not.”
“Your life is so easy.”
“You must be independently wealthy.”
All of the above statements are projections people have put on me based on how they see my life and not reality.
For someone to take the time and write comments to me like this I am obviously triggering them. I totally get it. I’ve had thoughts like that when looking at other people’s pictures too.
The questions I ask myself when this happens to me is,
“Why am I feeling this way towards this person? What’s this REALLY about?”
Whatever it is that makes you angry or jealous about this person is what either you need to work on within yourself, is subconsciously linked to something that has happened to you in your life you are still holding onto to or it’s what is seeking to emerge out of you.
Let’s start a conversation here. Join the conversation at the bottom of this blog by sharing what triggers you, why you feel triggered and what actions you are going to take to release the trigger.
The awesome in me bows to the awesome in you.
Love and light,
