Childhood PTSD and Getting Triggered: How Can You Feel Safe?

When CPTSD is active and our brains and emotions are dysregulated, we can be easily triggered by things that upset us — things people say and do (or don’t do), things that are shocking or hurtful, and just everyday stressors.

Getting triggered can cost us hours and days of disruption, so the search for a “safe space” can be an urgent one, yet hard to find.

So how do we stay “safe?” How much can we expect other people to prevent triggers from happening, and what’s our own role? What should we do if people trigger us? My answers may surprise you.
