But please stop using triggered in replace for upset, angry, displeased or just generally emotionally distressed.
I understand that yes , they upset you. It hurt
But as with someone who had a trauma WITH ACTUAL TRIGGERS, hearing you say ” she blamed me and it triggered me” just felt like a punch to the gut.
And there is no defences there saying you can use it because you yourself have said “I can’t imagine going through what you are”
Then.. please don’t just go around throwing that word around like it’s nothing
Or compare my depression to a week long rut. It’s kinda insesnsitive
