I feel like it needs to be said, but I'm at a loss for how to say it. I'm worried about scaring him and/or making him forever see me as a fragile victim. I'm not...but my experiences inform how I react to things others might think are inconsequential.

How have ya'll done it? It's related to abuse from a prior relationship. I hate bringing up my past loves but at the same time he would probably be confused if I get triggered some time in the future and he has no context for it.
