If a behavior happens repeatedly, you can learn from it. My counselor had me go back an analyze my behavior and what triggered it. We talked a lot about how I can choose to respond and how I’d like to respond. The second step (and it’s a big one) was to get to the point where I could recognize that I was in the middle of the behavior and work to mitigate the effect. The third step was to recognize that the behavior was about to happen or that I was in a situation where I could be triggered and work to ward off the behavior by exiting or doing something else.

I agree with Librarian. You can’t just jump to being able to walk away. It takes applied effort and self-analysis.
