Let me tell you something about wolves, child. When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.
Welcome to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
When your friend hasn’t come out yet
- gives you flashbacks of traumatic events
- sends you into an agonizing panic attack
- makes your heart skip beats from sheer terror
it does not
- mildly offend you
- make you feel uncomfortable
- gross you out
- make you angry
are we fucking done here
all i had to do was google “psychological trigger” to get the correct definition:
"A trauma trigger is an experience that triggers a traumatic memory in someone who has experienced trauma. A trigger is thus a troubling reminder of a traumatic event, although the trigger itself need not be frightening or traumatic.”
just in case you need it spelled out for you, a trigger does not need to give you flashbacks, panic attacks or “make your heart skin beats from sheer terror”, those are possible responses to the traumatic experience the trigger reminded you of, other possible responses could be:
- mild offense
honestly no one is making you tag your triggers, you can carry on being an insensitive fuck and no one’s really going to care, but if you could stop spreading misinformation that makes people feel ashamed of trying to have a happier and more comfortable blogging experience that would be fantastic.
Even mom turnt
You do care.You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.
