The Power of Triggers: Uncovering Unhealed Parts of Ourselves

It’s important to take a moment and reflect on ourselves. It’s easy to fall into the trap of criticizing others, and some people have a hard time admitting when they’re wrong. As humans, it’s natural to find faults in others and focus on their shortcomings, rather than acknowledging our own flaws. We see this behavior all the time in society, whether it’s in politics, the media, in movies, or even with family members…..

We often do it unconsciously without even realizing it. But why is it so hard for us to look at ourselves and admit our own shortcomings? What if I told you that this habit of fault-finding can be detrimental to our growth and progress? What if I told you that every time you feel triggered by a life coach’s post, it’s actually highlighting an unhealed part of yourself that needs to be released? Constantly fault-finding can hinder our growth and progress.

The truth is, we all have blind spots. Areas in our lives where we struggle, where we’re not as evolved as we could be. These blind spots can be hard to see, and it’s even harder to admit that they exist. We often project our insecurities and shortcomings onto others, pointing out their faults and flaws to deflect attention away from our own. But the reality is, the more we focus on others, the less time and energy we have to work on ourselves

Maybe the post touched on a topic that we’re struggling with, and we’re feeling insecure about our ability to overcome it. Maybe the post challenged a belief that we’ve held onto for a long time, and we’re feeling uncomfortable with the idea of changing our perspective. Maybe the post made us realize that we’ve been projecting our own issues onto others, and we’re not ready to face that reality yet.

As a life coach, my job is to help people identify their blocks, limited beliefs and work on their personal growth. I often post content that triggers people, and it’s not uncommon for some to react defensively. When this happens, it’s usually because they see something in my post that hits a nerve – an unhealed part of themselves that needs to be addressed.

When a post from a life coach triggers you, it’s worth taking a step back and asking yourself why. What is it about their message that bothers you? Is it something they’re saying that you disagree with? Or is it possible that they’re touching on an unhealed part of yourself that you’ve been avoiding? These simple questions can be the starting point for self-reflection and personal growth.

It’s important to recognize that no one is perfect, and we all have our own flaws and areas for improvement. Instead of focusing on the faults of others, we should shift our attention to our own growth and development. It’s not always easy to confront our own issues, especially when they’re uncomfortable or painful but ignoring them won’t make them go away. In fact, it’s often our own unresolved issues that make it difficult for us to connect with others and find fulfillment in our lives.

When we’re willing to look at ourselves honestly and acknowledge our blind spots, we open up the door to growth and transformation. We become more self-aware, more compassionate, and more resilient. So the next time we feel triggered by a life coach’s post, let’s remember that it’s not about them. It’s about us and the unhealed parts of ourselves that are waiting to be released…..
