When our triggers are set off, rationale is nowhere to be found. But over time, one can learn to become attuned to rising emotion or, at least, associated sensations in the body. With that practice of presence, grace is granted.
Even in the space of one breath, everything can change. When we feel provoked, that space allows us to provide context. The response loses intensity because triggers work best in the absence of perspective. They thrive in a void.
Presence is the countermeasure to the threat of that void. Triggers lose their power when you are in communion with your essence.
