I feel the word “triggered” is a little overused online and has come to mean “I read something upsetting,” and I want to be very very clear about what I mean by triggered and tweaked. (I will get into whether I think demanding that people never post things or say things or wear things or eat things that could possibly trigger or tweak you and blaming them for your pain is a useful exercise toward the end of this post.)
I feel like this, too, so I’m glad this post is available.
