Why is it so easy for my parents to trigger me? I've done so much work but my mother keeps saying things to me that bring up the memories of how she ignored my trauma growing up. I have grown so much from the child who survived those things and I am strong enough to survive those memories but I get upset when I'm not able to prevent being triggered in the first place. I know being triggered does not make me weak and that It is my right not to be in pain.
It's great that you know your trigger.
I know it is and I've gotten to the place with so many other ones where I just knowledge them as what they are and don't beat my self up or act like it's my fault they make me feel the way they do but it's so easy for my parents to make me feel like that little girl who was being hurt.
