Trigger Dumping

Going beyond communicating or making a request, to blaming the other person for triggering us or expecting them to change their behaviour, is what I call ‘Trigger Dumping’.

It is not respectful and does not take responsibility, and so is not Conscious.

If you are tempted to do this to another person, the answer, as always, is to release any self-judgements.

Anywhere your self-judgements have caused you to attempt to make other people responsible for your Reactions to innocent events, would you like to let that go?

And would you like to ask your body if it would like to let that go?

In fact, after I explained the definition of the term, my friend realised it had happened with a friend of hers earlier that day, remarking: “She totally just Trigger Dumped on me!”

Trigger Dumping is also an example of ‘Control and Abuse Consciousness’, as explained below, since it occurs when somebody who is Unwilling to take responsibility for their own Reactions seeks to force someone else to do (or stop doing) something innocent.
