Understanding ourselves and identifying what can trigger unpleasant emotional reactions such as panic, anxiety, jealousy or fear can be a challenging process. However, it can be a helpful and healing process.
Feeling rejected, abandoned, overlooked, judged, blamed, controlled…these are all common triggers of unpleasant emotional reactions and can create overwhelming bouts of despair and bewilderment.
Events in our childhood and adolescence that caused pain or trauma, before we could process them, can trigger our present. These past feelings stay in the subconscious and we can be powerfully and quickly transported back to a previous experience that has never been healed. We can then find ourselves reacting in an irrational way, unable to control the painful feelings that emerge.
Our brains are constantly scanning and remaining vigilant in order to keep us safe and, if a threat appears on the horizon, then it will prepare the fight or flight response and we react with a learned response which is often seen by others as emotional reactions.
One of our most subconscious fears is the fear of being rejected. We don’t like to be on the outside of our ‘tribe’, so, problems can occur when the brain misreads a situation that is, in fact, non-threatening, due to a past difficult experience.
