For your own mental, emotional and physical health and well-being, at some point in your life you have to review what happened in your youth, especially if you have blocked emotions that are causing pain within.
Here is my story regarding anger and depression:
I swallowed emotions from my childhood, especially anger towards my mother whom I thought caused the separation between my mother and father. My blocked emotions prevented me from feeling happy and at peace for most of my life.
It was until my 30's when I started to have severe and chronic pains in my back and stomach. I had episodes of depression where I was prescribed Valium, the drug of the 80's. I also suffered from chronic migraines. During painful episodes, I was unable to function.
For relief, I would lie on my back in a darkened room with a cold compress on my head. I also swallowed too many tranquilizers and pain killers. It is easy to become addicted to these medications, fortunately I didn't.
I felt nauseous most of the time. Gelusil tablets offered some relief for stomach gastritis. When I finally saw my doctor, he suggested that I have an operation.
That was the last thing I wanted to do, so I went to a homeopath who suggested that I change my diet. The worst thing I can remember is eating and drinking raw potato juice. Believe me, it did help. At that time, I was fed up with seeing a psychiatrist who merely suggested taking tranquilizers.
You can find out more about emotions and how they affect you in what are emotions. My mother was very domineering and aggressive in her child-rearing methods, she did not spare the rod. Today she would be labelled a "bully", but back then, it was discipline. She was obsessive about control and as a result, she was emotionally and physically abusive.
Since we (myself and two sisters) were not allowed to voice our feelings or opinions, I swallowed my emotions. You can find out what happens when you are controlling your emotions especially depression and anger. Carrying negative emotions in your body can eventually lead to serious illnesses.
My healing finally began through my spiritual awakening when I lost the ones I loved, my mother, my sister then my partner which led to my spiritual crisis. You can read how I dealt with the loss of my loved ones in overcoming grief.
Everything changed. Finally, I started to listen to the voices that I ran from my whole life. I learned what I had to do.
Even though I have training in psychology and mental health disorders which helps me with counseling, I learned that the spiritual cleansing method of healing the physical body and mind works more efficiently and much faster.
Once you realize how depression and anger are related you will understand that your body can heal itself; your thoughts will change and the process of healing begins. The only necessary ingredient is faith and belief in the Higher Power. This is called 'spiritual energy healing'.
