Learned Skill # 7

Know what your triggers are! Try to avoid triggers that may cause you to have outbursts, depression, anger, and loneliness. For me, I rarely watch TV because of all the drama, hate, and unexplained emotions portrayed on the screen. TV triggers negative emotions in me that causes my mental state to take on the negative perception of things. Avoiding what may trigger you can sometimes be tricky, but know yourself and be self aware during negative times. Examples of self awareness: What happened right before you decided you wanted to punch that wall? Who were you with and what was said to make you feel worthless? Be self aware of what triggered you at that moment to avoid repetitive negative emotions. You have the power to change all future outcomes.
