Many people live with baggage, events that have happened in their lives, and never come to peace with them. You've not had closure, healing, and acceptance. You have not processed the emotional component of events that have occurred in your life, particularly when you were younger. You then get triggered easily in fight, flight, freeze, and you feel unsafe.
The question to ask yourself is, do I live in survival, or am I thriving and calm?
The psychological changes in your body when you are in fight, flight, or freeze are meant to last for a short period, just till the danger until you face the danger and whether you fight, flight or freeze.
We can remain in a state of persistent arousal with limited opportunities to release the built-up tension and we repeatedly react in this way over and over, and over again, over decades.
So, the goal is to come down from living in a survival way of living and living in a calm, thriving manner. You are either in a heightened state of survival or you are in a relaxed calm place within yourself free from your baggage, it is your choice.
