It really is Monday. And, it's a high trigger day.
Anger and dissociating are tough to deal with. Also, various triggering people who don't know when to back off.
How do you protect yourself in that situation? Do you sit and take it because they have the right to say and do anything they please? Or, do you politely get up and leave?
Lately, we're running into various people that don't know when to back off. It seems like no matter how many times you say, please stop talking about this they just keep going.
Our attitude now? If they don't stop, then leave. Don't sink to their level and then have to apologize later. Just leave.
How many people will admit that you exist? Now, how many of these people will suddenly stop triggering you? Maybe not a lot.
Which means you have to protect yourself at all costs. Unless it's your boss, odds are you can walk out of it. If you have to, you don't owe them any explanation. Why? Because you're not resposible for what they say and do. You cover your side. And then leave.
How many times a day do you have this happen to you? Do you walk away? Or, do you just sit and take it because you just do?
We refuse to do that. We deserve better. And we think that you do too.
