The Link Between anger And Depression

By Rhys Jones

Depression and anxiety are said to be 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 causes depression. If you feel that, there is no way out then your depression can impact on your life and cause you to sink 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 almost definitely thinking negatively, which instigates depression and anxiety. In this short article, we will reveal some techniques to help 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 scream in your head: 'I can't take it any more?'. Do you feel like someone 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 differently, then you will probably explode when your emotions soar and your anger bursts forth. Instead of telling yourself that you are out of your mind, why not tell yourself that you are temporarily emotionally disturbed and that you need to resolve the situation. 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 someone is out to get you then you might have a chemical imbalance or a mental illness. Why not visit your doctor or a mental health expert to learn more about your 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 a result of a chemical imbalance.

If you think that people think you are going mad, you may want to remember that most people have their own problems and don't have time to analyze you as a person. When you walk into a room and think that people are gawping at you, you might want to remember that all people observe the things around them, checking to make sure that everything is all right around themselves before returning to their own little lives.

If you feel that you 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 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 do not have control over. If you have problems, the answers lie within you, so it pays to look into your head.

If you are really struggling to obtain your goals then you might want to break them down into smaller more realistic 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 reach your target.

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

Stretching out on a couch to watch your favourite movie can relax your mind and body, if you want to destress. 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. - 31520
