I hear this from students so often. “Why you triggered?” or “What he said triggered me!” I never did like this word because it has always been about placing blame on someone else for the way a student responded to a situation. If you are not familiar with Peter Crone, then you should look him up and hear what he has to say. I am amazed every time I hear him because of how he views life and the things we are going through. Peter does not view himself or others the way most people do. Take this post on his Instagram about being triggered for example. Most people think of a trigger is a bad thing, he explains why it’s good and should be considered a gift. Interested in why? Check out the post at the bottom of this post. What impresses me most about this man is that he sees things from a place of self-reflection, empathy for others, and often against the general perspectives of the masses. This post is not for me to talk about being triggered, it’s for Peter to. I will be adding a tab for resources, videos, links, and articles that we can use to enlighten, inspire, motivate, and educate. Enough from me.
This message from Peter is short. Please take the time to listen to him and I hope that you follow him as well. You will not regret it.
