I possibly triggered my best friend?


Recommended Posts

In a previous post I stated I told one of my best friends I self harmed. She reacted quite positively, telling me to stop and things like that. I was aware in the past that she use to scratch herself. But now she's cutting and she told me she started a week ago, which is when I told her I was cutting. I'm debating if I should ask if I triggered her, but I'm not sure.

If she said no already, I think you can trust that. I think underlying this fear is the fact that you care about your friend. There is a comic I really like about saying "Thank you" instead of "I'm sorry". I think replacing sorry works better in this case, too. You could say something like "I want to be a positive, supportive presence in your life". That starts the conversation in a positive direction about how each of you can work to support the other
