Emotions..Depression, Anger?

Emotions are strange things are they not?

Do you ever get down for no reason? Well no conceivable reason, nothing you can put your finger on…nothing out of the ordinary, nothing negative or bad happening..

Does it feel like the reaper is following you around?

Everything is ideal as can be, but yet you are still in a pit of blackness. It happens to me from time to time, I try to understand, I deal with it, I have no choice..but I see it effect others aswell, when it’s those I care about it bothers me..having experience with it, I can often help them combat it. It’s a weird sensation, something like desolation, being alone although you are not, being sad although you shouldn’t be, feeling useless even though you are far from it.

I’ll perhaps reference them as I ramble through this post.

I’ve talked about Destiny and Fate[/url], what they mean and how they can effect you..

These often seem to cause bones of contention and depression, what is happening to me? where is my life going? what is the point of my existence? am I doing the right thing?

I rambled about how you should pull your shit together[/url] when you are at the bottom of the heap, people need to take care of themselves, stop worrying about what other people thing, stop taking instructions from people that don’t know anything and STOP blaming others for their failures. Life is there for the taking, you are in control, if you aren’t – you are doing something wrong.

I’ve written about personal devils, and how you should face them[/url], don’t run away, never run away, the pain and the depression just get’s worse. With things of the heart, as with anger, hiding it, pushing it away just intensifies it, resent grows, anger bubbles until it reaches boiling point if it’s not dealt with.

Depression spirals down…if it’s serious, it has a cause, a reasoning, unless it’s truly medical, then it’s mental, it’s of your own creation, perhaps something in earlier life, perhaps something you aren’t even conciously aware of triggered it.

2004[/url] was quite some year for me, eventful in many ways..I’ve always loved quotes from Nietzsche, one of the most emminently quotable folks to have ever walked the earth.

My favourite being “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

This is true, truth lies in pain, hurt and deceit, I guess all but the most sheltered has experienced these things through their lives. Yin and Yang, it also makes you appreciate the good, without the bad there IS no good.

Life is not all about the good, character is shown by dealing with the the bad, the ugly, the uncomfortable and the inevitable.

Hmm what am I writing about actually? I really have no idea.

Perhaps the devolution of morals? Perhaps the increase of depression as society puts more pressure on people, expectation raise, stress increases..

Anger luckily unlike my asshole father is something I don’t suffer from, I have a very even temperament, perhaps I’ll blog one day about the 2 times in my entire life I recall losing my temper. Which is good, anger is bad, resolution is good.

As for arguments, it doesn’t make you right just because you can shout louder than me.

Some people can be horribly insensitive too, only thinking about themselves, I urge you to take control of your lives, just not at the detriment of others, you still have to think about the consequences your actions will create. Think before you speak, think twice before you act..look before you leap and all that 🙂

I’m still not sure exactly what I’m trying to say.

Perhaps nothing. I’ll leave it for now..

    Not 100% sure what you are trying to say either. Looks like, maybe, you are trying to develop some sort of philosophy to give people a rational way to eliminate depression. (other than the medical ones which can’t be helped through logic, as they will inevitably have a chemical base somewhere).

    Sometimes, I find it’s like a long dark tunnel without a light at the end of it. People just need to have faith that they’ll eventually come out the other end okay.

    Seneca might be of some help. He believed we get depressed, frustrated etc by being too optimistic in our view of the world. Goodness doesn’t always get rewarded, and evil doesn’t always get punished. We have to accept these things and move on. Allowing them to get us down is like a stone around our own necks.

    I think the short version of it is “Shit happens. Get over it.”
    Of course, accepting circumstances isn’t as easy as it sounds … but Seneca seemed to do pretty good with it.

    I have no idea if I’ve helped or hindered here … but hopefully it is some help to someone somewhere.

    It’s alright to ramble. Sometimes it’s nice to just let go of the reins and let your mind churn out what’s swimming in there without regard for coherence – but it does sound like you’re trying to get something off your chest. Hope the weekend holds something uplifting for you.

    Yup, when you’re at the bottom the only way is up right?

    Some people place too much expectation on themselves and others, can lead to a lot of disappoint..

    Same shit, different day 😀

  13. ShaolinTiger April 17, 2005 at 11:50 pm #

    Not sure what exactly, just getting kind of bored over here, had a jumble of things to say, not really sure what came out 😀

  14. ShaolinTiger April 17, 2005 at 11:53 pm #

    No problems, glad I could be of some help.

  15. ShaolinTiger April 17, 2005 at 11:56 pm #

    Yeah there is a lot of medical information out there about seratonin levels and social factors, a lot of technical information about chemical levels and treatment dosages..

    But not much from people who’ve been there and actually understand it, hope I was of some help 🙂

    All people should think before they do anything. So you have good advice,
    One day I might follow my own advice and think first … but hey, why start something new … 🙂
