How to prevent flow from resending all emails when being turned back on

I currently have a Power Automate that will send an email notification based on the emails in a SharePoint list field. I want to turn the flow off and add modifications to the flow and then turn it back on, but I noticed that each time I turn it on and off it will send out all the emails again. Is there a way to prevent the flow from sending all emails to preexisting items in my list?

What trigger you are using?

Contact me if you are interested in custom Power Automate development.

I am using "When an item is created" for SharePoint and "Send an email notification (V3)"

Can you confirm that you are using a "When an item is created" trigger?  I ask because a Flow using that trigger should not fire again after yo turn it off/on.  It should only run for new items created after the Flow is turned on again.
