What If You Could Welcome Being Triggered?Dec 02, 2022
Today's video is a recording I made a month ago after observing an exchange on social media where one person had been triggered by another person's comments. This person then proceeded to try and argue against the person sharing, labelling them pretty harshly, and whilst I didn't necessarily agree with what the other person had shared, I felt their heart in it. It felt honest and sincere.
Of course this kind of exchange is not unusual. It happens whenever we get attached to a perspective in any area of our life.
But what if there is truth in all perspectives and, even if we won't always see it, being suspicious of this at least might help us to keep our hearts and minds open to seeing something from that perspective as a result of us being triggered?
In today's video I share quite a personal story of how I really came to see this during a quite intense situation and how it has also helped me to not be so triggered and to stay a little bit more in appreciation of other's views, even if I don't necessarily agree with them.
I know, for some, even this idea that being triggered might be an opportunity or something to be welcomed could in of itself be triggering.
If so, I gently invite you to stay with me and be with the potential discomfort of this idea which for me is a key part of how we stay open minded (and I speak to in the video). As you do, let yourself see what YOU can see, even if you don't agree with what I share.
I hope you find it helpful.
