Depression

Depression and Anger

What do depression and anger have in common? Actually, it is almost impossible to have one without the other. Depression is often caused by negative thoughts that you have about others or yourself. You may feel no control over the way your life is going and instead of using your anger to push yourself forward finding solutions to your dilemma you make a conscious or unconscious decision to give up on trying to make your situation better. Thus you spiral into depressive thoughts and actions.

Hope

Everyone needs hope these days. We all hope that isis is defeated and that we don't lose our freedom. We all hope that we can get a handle on global warming before our planet is destroyed. But what about the daily life we all experience? Are we consumed with world problems so much that we have no room for joy? 
Spontaneous feelings of pleasure and happiness seem to happen when we are feeling good about ourselves and our choices. That inner peace is priceless, but it can't be obtained by any other means than self-knowledge and self-acceptance.

Depression

What is depression? 

It is lethargy; a feeling of not OK. You have angry feelings towards others and yourself but you don't know where to go or what to do about these feelings. They linger around like a bad cold sapping your energy and drive. 

You might be in a place where there is no one who understands or cares what you are feeling. Maybe you don't know how to express your thoughts. They may be all jumbled up inside your head like a cobweb and you feel like the bug who is trapped.
