Distance yourself from people who are constantly triggered. It’s a never ending vortex of victim-hood.

I've done this and it's both vastly improved my life and given me more hope for humanity in general. I was concerned that most people my age fell into this pattern of thinking, but someone recently helped me see differently. It turns out that people who constantly throw blame and trigger warnings around are fairly emotionally abusive and toxic, as they expect me to conform to their often illogical whims. Obviously there is nuance here, and it's not ok to just be an asshole and agitate reasonable people. But plenty of people just get angry over reasonable differences on subjective issues and then attack others in the name of "kindness". Best to cut them out.
