Now, it may be a behavior that you are not okay with and you can address that as well, by saying; “Even though I was triggered and my reaction wasn’t solely about this issue, I am still not okay with that behavior in our relationship.”
It’s important to know your partner’s triggers as well.
If your relationship is in a healthy enough place, you can explore them together. If not, that’s okay too. This is a do-it-yourself project.
And did I mention that you should get some help? Whether it’s processing with a best friend or reading a lot of self-help about healing your wounds. You’ve got some work to do and the dividend payoffs are huge.
Reach out if you need some help. You’ve got this!
