Reasons Why We feel triggered in a relationship
Relationships can be a very important cornerstone in our lives. However, it is very possible to feel triggered in a relationship because of a number of reasons.
A reason why we feel triggered in a relationship is not having enough space. When the relationship becomes more and more intense, there can be times when we have no time for ourselves or no “me time”. This lack of personal space can lead to you feeling triggered and it reflects in the wrong ways.
When you feel that you are not being heard or seen in your relationships and in your daily conversations, it can be a major trigger for you to behave differently so that you can get the attention that you deserve.
Very often people expect that their partner would understand their needs without having to communicate them. Though this is an unfair expectation to have in the 1st place, it will nevertheless lead to you lashing out on your partners when they are unable to guess your needs and be there for you in the way you want. Whenever you feel such a thing, it’s important to communicate better with your partner and tell them what you need.
Past trauma from other relationships, childhood, or even friendships can make you feel insecure in your relationship and these past trauma can come out in the most unhealthy ways in your relationship.
One of the most important things is when we feel underappreciated in a relationship. Everyone has a social need to feel acknowledged. However, when the relationship cannot provide that, it becomes a major trigger for us.
Insecurity such as low self-esteem or fear of rejection can also cause you to act in a defensive manner and become highly sensitive to whatever your partner has to say. Though it is common to feel triggered in a relationship because of these reasons, these can also be easily resolved if you learn to recognise them and talk to your partner about it.
