In this week’s episode, Barb and Michelle tackle how to know when to fight and when to let things go. It can feel so easy to jump into every battle that comes our way, but when we do this, we often feel overwhelmed, overworked, and anxiety ridden. Learn how Barb and Michelle discern where they place their energy.

A trigger is a stimulus that elicits a reaction. In the context of mental illness, “trigger” is often used to mean something that brings on or worsens symptoms. This often happens to people with a history of trauma or who are recovering from mental illness, self-harm, addiction, and/or eating disorders.
How to disengage from the constant habit of being triggered:
- Have AWARENESS of what triggers you, and knowing what you value and what matters most to you.
- Set the BOUNDARIES with people and the boundaries within yourself to keep yourself in check.
- COMMUNICATE with these people about your boundaries and what matters to you as a means of self-care.
