EP.15 External and Internal Triggers [self-awareness]

The Borealis Experience

03-05-2023 • 11 mins

Hello there dear friend,

What is the difference between external and internal triggers ?

All too often we blame the external world for our triggers and we feel righteous about it because we can physically point the finger at the person or the something that has triggered us.

We know that triggers are somewhat inevitable. How can we become more conscious of our triggers and be/feel less agitated and more grounded and content in our life?
