The Link Between Anger and Depression

By Owen Jones

Depression and anxiety are said to be the causes of uncontrollable anger. When a person is constantly worried about things they have no control over or even things that they do have control over, it often causes severe depression. If you have the feeling, there is no way out then your depression can affect your life and cause you to sink into a wave of despair.

Taking control of your emotions usually produces good results. If you feel that the world is falling down around your ears, then you are almost definitely thinking negatively, which brings on depression and anxiety. In this short piece, we will discuss some techniques to empower you to cope with anxiety and depression, thus relieving uncontrollable anger.

Firstly, let us examine the symptoms. Do you feel like you are going out of your mind? Do you scream in your head: 'I can't take it any more?'. Do you feel like everyone is out to get you? Do you think people view you as mad? If you are undergoing any or all of these symptoms then you are probably suffering from some form of anxiety and depression.

If you can not find a way to think in a different mode, then you will probably explode when your emotions start to soar and your anger bursts forth. Instead of telling yourself that you are going mad, why not tell yourself that you are only having a temporary emotional problem and that you need to solve the problem. Review all the problem areas carefully and search your memory to see if there are answers to your problems there. Reviewing like this, often opens doors to resources you may have overlooked.

If you feel like everyone is out to get you then you may have a chemical imbalance or a mental illness. Why not visit your doctor or a mental health expert to learn more about the symptoms and find a way to regain control of your life. Anxiety and depression can play tricks with your mind but sometimes the thoughts are just the result of a lack of a chemical balance.

If you think that people think you are going crazy, you may want to remember that most people have their own problems and don't have the time nor the inclination to worry about you as a person. When you walk into a room and think that people are staring at you, you might want to remember that all people watch the things around them, checking to make sure that their surroundings are all right before returning to their own lives.

If you feel like you just cannot take it any more, just bite your lip and walk another mile. When times are difficult, it does not mean it is the end of the world, although sometimes it may seem this way. If you are struggling to pay bills, fighting to hold a family together, or having difficulty with your children then remember that we all have these problems at some time or another in our lives.

Are your children driving you nuts? If they are, take a break. Go do something entertaining or exercise. This often relieves the stress that leads to anxiety, depression and anger. Your life is too short to worry about the things you do not have control over. If you have problems, the answers are within you, so it pays to review your mind.

If you are struggling to obtain your goals then you might want to break your goals down to smaller segments and work slowly to achieve them. If you set goals within reason, you will not need to stress your mind finding a way to achieve them.

It is important to pamper yourself each day. Learn some coping techniques that will benefit both your mind and your body. If you feel snowed under, you might want to take deep breaths ten times.

Stretching out on a sofa to watch your favourite film can relax your mind and your body, if you want to de-stress your mind. Learn to concentrate on what you are doing instead of fretting about what you are not doing. This often clears the mind and helps you to relax.

If you are subject to sustained anger, you will most probably have problems for the rest of your life unless you learn to take control of your emotions. Remember that depression leads to uncontrollable anger. - 31891
