Depression And Anger Are Linked

By Owen Jones

Depression and anxiety are almost certainly the causes of uncontrollable anger. When a person is continuously worried about problems they have no control over or even problems they do have control over, it often results in depression. If you feel that, there is no hope then your depression can impact on your life and cause you to sink into a spiral of despair.

Taking control of your emotions usually produces good results. If you feel that the world is crumbling down around you, then you are almost definitely thinking in a negative mode, which brings on depression and anxiety. In this short piece, we will reveal some techniques to enable you to cope with anxiety and depression, thus relieving uncontrollable anger.

First of all, let us take a look at the symptoms. Do you feel like you are going out of your mind? Do you shout in your head: 'I cannot take it any more?'. Do you feel like someone is out to get you? Do you think people view you as a crazy person? If you are suffering any or all of these symptoms or thoughts then you are probably suffering from 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 breaks out. 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 resolve the situation. Review all your 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 visit your doctor or a mental health expert to learn more about your symptoms and find a way to gain control over your life. Anxiety and depression will play tricks with your mind but sometimes the thoughts are a result of a chemical imbalance.

If you believe that people think you are crazy you might want 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 watch 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 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. 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 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 relaxation 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 film 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 unbridled anger, you will most probably have problems for the rest of your life unless you start to master your emotions. Remember that depression leads to uncontrollable anger.
