Ego – Couples Coaching by Ultimate Life
When I get triggered one of the first things I remind myself of is to create a safe container, a safe place for my partner. The next thing I think of is my ego and how it cost me so much trouble throughout my prior relationship. My ego fed my anger and caused me to say things I regretted. When I remind myself of this it helps me to let it go, to wait, to calm down. When I recognize I’m being triggered, I remind myself that it is my junk coming up. Someone else is not being blamed, rather, it is me being triggered, my stuff coming up, my issue to work on, not to blame someone else.
