“Trigger” is a buzzword used in the psychology and counseling community. It’s something that you see or hear that “triggers” an emotional or physical response from you, often based on a previous experience.

Triggers are everywhere. Everybody has a trigger or ten or twenty. For some, a trigger can be debilitating. For others, everything is a trigger. For some, a trigger is just an excuse to behave poorly.

The Bible would call these snares, entanglements, temptations, allurements, or enticements. They are intended by the enemy to distract and derail, and disable.

It is amazing the contrast between how pop psychologists, self-soothers, and narcissists would differ from Biblical instruction in dealing with triggers.
