These days I'm mostly not prone to such reactions and very rarely an over reaction, this came from seeing a good therapist in conjunction with going through the ACA's yellow book; which helped me pin point, identify and heal the older wounds.

Now I only feel new hurts, which are far easier to deal with than new hurt + x number of older hurts.

Take it easy
Hi makomago, thank you for the insights.

I've been trying not to put myself into triggering situations until I can understand this better. Your explanation makes a lot of sense.

I don't know what 'ACA' stands for but I'm going to research that.

Have a great day & thank you!
