People, Places and Things

Choose to avoid all triggering situations, or make them safe if you can’t avoid them.

You don’t have to go to business meetings at nude bars. You can tell the others that going to such places interferes with your spiritual growth.

If you can’t avoid some triggers such as working on a computer, make it safe for yourself. Install blocking software (so that you don’t know the password), keep your door open, turn the screen toward the door, put the computer at home in a public area, never go online when you are alone. You can figure out the details.

Avoiding triggers is respecting your own boundaries.

If your commute to and from work takes you through  a triggering area, change your route.  Take the long way in to work, or find a safe alternative.
