body triggers



What are body triggers? My counselor says I feel afraid of some people, random people because of something called a body trigger.

A body trigger can vary from person to person.  For example a body trigger for me is often a person the same or similar shape and build as my abusers.   For me, these people remind me of my abusers and that causes anxiety and hyper awareness.  I start trying to figure out ways to get away from whomever it is.  Now of course these people cannot help their physical appearance.  Their physical attributes are based largely on genetics. But for me, being around them involves being in the present moment.  Dealing in the present moment has helped me considerably and may help you to.   Keep looking up.
