Chronic Depression
Often Comes From Unresolved Grief And Anger

Authored by William G. DeFoore, Ph.D.

Chronic depression basically means depression that has 
lasted a very long time. In my 40+ years of professional experience, I have found that and anger issues can often be the cause or a part of the cause of depression that just won't go away.

Chronic Depression & Unresolved Grief

If you have experienced major loss of any kind in your life, you have either grieved, or you need to.

Do you know what happens to people who don't grieve after a significant loss? Well, you need to, because it applies to a lot of us.

Here's how it works sometimes:

  • You never learned how to grieve.
  • As a natural part of life, you have had losses--loss of innocence, loss of loved ones, loss of youth, loss of jobs, loss through divorce, etc.
  • Not knowing how to grieve, you keep most of the pain, sorrow and anger inside, which becomes a burden you have to carry. (Suppressed emotion interferes with your breathing, digestion and circulation.)
  • Over time, more losses occur, adding to your burden.
  • When you look at your life ahead, knowing there will be more losses, you start to feel depressed.
  • All of the unexpressed negative emotion, combined with a bleak outlook for the future, creates  chronic depression.

You will find a full description of the grief process on this web page. Learning how to grieve might be one of the best gifts you can give yourself!

If you are dealing with chronic depression and you're not sure if you have done all of your grieving over past losses, this is something you definitely want to explore

Chronic Depression And Suppressed Anger

If you think about it, anger is an action emotion. When you just keep all of your anger inside for a long period of time, it can definitely lead to depression warning signs and then chronic depression. Let's take a look at the process:

  • Things happen that hurt. You feel abused, abandoned, neglected or rejected.
  • You don't know how to get your anger out in healthy ways, so after trying a few times to express it, you just give up. Or, you never even try to express your anger in the first place because you learned that it is bad.
  • Then, things keep happening that hurt, frustrate and bother you...I mean, that is life, isn't it?
  • So all of those negative emotions keep building up, and guess what? You end up depressed!

You don't have to live like that! Help is here, and all you have to do is take advantage of it. You are, after all, your own best anger management resource for emotional healing.
