I went on live to have a discussion about triggers. My triggers are: rejection and inadequacy. But I love that I’m more emotionally honest lately. I love that I can use my sadness constructively in real time for gratitude.

What triggers your sadness? What do you do when those buttons are pushed? What do you love about yourself in those moments of darkness?
