An experience that has caused mild to severe phantom stress on a person. In an attempt to make such events easier to talk about, these cases can be referred to as bruh moments, major Ls, or big oofs. Traumatic events often result in flashbacks due to certain words, images, sounds, or actions, known as triggers.
Me: yeah, so I got jumped that one time, and I've been afraid to go anywhere alone. So that was a major L

My therapist: well, you see, we don't refer to these moments as major Ls. We call these experiences traumatic events.
