I learned today that I have a trigger. That trigger would be my ex boyfriend. He spoke to my current boyfriend today and apprently felt the need to warn him that I am not a good housekeeper. He spoke like he was angry at me. Truth be told... I am very triggered by this. I did not handle our breakup as well as I should have. I bungled it severely. I firmly believe that if I had not ended it when I did, we would both be miserable. There have been times that I have wanted to apologize for my behavior. I have yet to do so. I think two years is a little late for apologies. Truth is, I can't deal with how I feel when I'm around him. He creates a reaction so deep and raw inside me that sometimes, when I'm least expecting it, stops my breath and leaves my head pounding. We both made mistakes. I should have done more to better myself while we were together. He should have done more for himself as well. I needed more patience. I regret that I mishandled the situation, but I do not regret ending the relationship. I constantly worry over things I shouldn't worry about, due to my emotional/mental scarring. I've worked very hard to become the person I am today. I've spent over two years getting here. But today... today I was triggered. Today I learned what it was to be triggered.
