The message of the Triggers is to show that, although certain events or situations may not seem much on the outside, they can affect people suffering from mental illness in different ways. The hope is that they can continue from their dark past.
The triggers give an idea of how life can be with depression and anxiety. Each time the black figure appears to the girl, a "trigger" has just happened (wanting another body, spending a lot of time in front of a mirror and not feeling beautiful, a boyfriend breaking up with her or a boyfriend). failed job interview). In the end, we see the figure bleeding from a wound in the arm, in the exact place where the girl has a long scar. The figure is she in the past. When the figure abandons her, she knows what to do and throws away her "coping mechanism": the scissors on the counter.
