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."
The sooner you see the depression warning signs coming, the sooner you can do something about it. For a look at more advanced symptoms, take a look at this depression test. Now, let's look at the very first signs and indicators that you're becoming depressed.
Other examples of depression warning signs would include:
Speaking of getting old, it's happening to all of us! It started at birth, and it ends at death, so we need to get good with it.. Learn how to age with elegance and style.
One way of understanding depression warning signs is in terms of how anger and depression work together. Most of us never learned to express anger in healthy ways, so we either stuff it or blow up at those we love. Both can easily and often do lead to depression.
