Today, I have found a different way of dealing with triggers. When I’m triggered, I see my abuser. My therapist suggested that instead of picturing him I replace him with someone a trust and Tigger. Yes, Tigger.
Who cannot resist smiling when you see the bouncy one. I understand that this might not good for everyone, as we’re all different. But if I can replace him with someone I trust and tigger, I think they may lessen the impact.
