106. Why Your Triggers are Opportunities for Growth (Re-air: October 2021) | The Sensitive & Soulful Show

highly sensitive podcast Sep 05, 2023

This was one of my very first episodes and also a favorite because I still talk about and believe in the importance of triggers and how they can help us grow.


Triggers can show up in all sorts of ways - from an immediate emotional reaction like anger or sadness to a physical gut reaction like shaking, feeling sick, or nauseous. It can be overwhelming and happen so suddenly that we aren't aware until we're deep in the feels.

It can be easy to blame others when we're triggered but instead we should empower ourselves to find the root cause of the issue and why what that person did triggered us in the first place. Turn the focus inward and respect yourself enough to work through the problems.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • How to know when you're being triggered
  • What triggers actually mean
  • How to find the root cause of these emotions
