What is the Link Between Anger and Depression

By Rhys Jones

Anxiety and depression are almost certainly the causes of uncontrolled anger. When a person is constantly worried about problems they have no control over or even problems they do have control over, it often results in depression. If you have the feeling, there is no way out then your depression can impact on your life and cause you to drift down into a spiral of despair.

Taking charge of your emotions produces good results. If you feel that the world is tumbling down around you, then you are probably thinking in a negative way, which instigates depression and anxiety. In this short article, we will discuss some techniques to enable you to cope with anxiety and depression, thus relieving uncontrollable anger.

First, let us examine the symptoms. Do you feel as if you are going out of your head? Do you shout in your head: 'I can't take it any more?'. Do you feel like everyone is out to get you? Do you think people see you as a crazy person? 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 differently, then you will probably explode when your emotions start to soar and your anger bursts forth. Instead of telling yourself that you are out of your mind, 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 there. A review like this, often opens doors to resources you may have overlooked.

If you feel like someone is out to get you then you might have a chemical imbalance or a mental illness. Why not go to see your doctor or a mental health expert to learn more about the symptoms and find a way to regain control over your life. Anxiety and depression can play tricks with your mind and sometimes the thoughts are the result of a chemical imbalance.

If you believe that people think you are mad you might care to remember that most people have their own problems and have no time to analyze you as a person. When you walk into a room and think that people are staring at you, you might want to remember that people observe things around them, making sure everything is OK and then return to their own lives.

If you feel like you cannot take it any longer, pick up your torture stick 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 we all have these problems at some time in our lives.

Are your kids driving you nuts? If they are, take a break. Go and do something entertaining or some exercise. This very often relieves the stresses that lead to anxiety, depression and anger. Life is just too short to worry about the things in life that you cannot change. If you have problems, the answers lie within you, so it pays to look into your head.

If you are really struggling to reach your goals then you might want to break them down into smaller segments and work patiently to achieve them. If you set goals that are within reason, you will not need to get stressed finding a way to achieve your target.

It is important to pamper yourself each day. Learn some coping techniques that will benefit both your mind and your body. If you feel overwhelmed, you might want to inhale and exhale for ten counts.

Curling up on a couch to watch your favourite movie can benefit your mind and body, if you want to let your mind relax. Learn to focus on what you are doing instead of fretting about what you are not doing. This often clears the mind and allows you to relax.

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