Thought Stirring Question: Public

Many survivors have triggers relating to holidays. Whether it's the current winter holidays, or elsewhere on the year, holiday celebrations can be triggering. Some have anniversaries near a holiday, were abused during a holiday, or were abused by someone with a fixation on a particular holiday.

So this week's questions are about holiday-related triggers, regardless of which holiday contains triggers for you. While the winter holidays are most present in our minds right now, you're welcome to write about whatever holiday you'd like!

This week's questions:
- Is there a holiday which is triggering to you? Which holiday?

- What do you associate with that holiday/why is the holiday triggering?

- What coping skills or practices help you most during your holiday-related triggers?
