Depression Warning Signs
Where Does Anger Fit In?

Authored by William G. DeFoore, Ph.D.

One of the depression warning signs to watch for is the absence of anger or inward directed anger. Anger has energy in it, and one of the signs of depression is lack of energy--and the last thing you want to do is be angry at yourself.

Often, if you're depressed, anger is the last thing on your mind, but the healthy expression of anger can be one of the first steps out of a depressive episode.

When anger is healthy, it comes from your truth and your good heart, and it is actually a healing force that lives within you all of the time.

Healthy anger says, "I don't like this, and I'm going to do something (constructive) about it." Depression says, "I don't like this, and there's nothing I can do about it."
