A smell, picture or a new circumstance can trigger and resurface emotional pain – from circumstances that may have happened even decades ago and even if you dealt with it previously. Personally, I most typically deal with triggers or resurfaced pain regarding the abuse I endured as a teen or regarding grief in losing our son, my parents, and a best friend.
In this article I share three concepts I use to spur healing rather than allowing the trigger to be a fearful nuisance.
What types of circumstances have resurfaced pain for you, and what did you find most helpful? I love to hear from our readers, so please leave a comment.
