Inward Anger

I’m not depressed, I’m just angry. Inward anger is when a person has turned their anger towards themselves. They often are quick to say the following:

“I should have known better”
“That person is better than me”
“I have trouble learning x,y and z. I must be stupid.”
“I was rejected by him/her, what’s wrong with me?”

This type of negative talk followed by shame will eventually lead to depression. When a person is constantly angry, most likely there is something making them sad and the same goes when depression takes place; sadness will turn into anger. According to research, there are links between anger and depression. When you think about someone who is depressed our mind is trained to think about someone who is full of sadness when in reality, sadness is not the only sign of depression. We forget anger, irritability, and reckless behavior is part of it as well.

“He who is slow to get angry has a great understanding, but he who has a quick temper makes his foolish way look right”…- Proverbs 14:29

So… I have this emotion that won’t go away, what do I do now?

1) Congratulations, you’ve already acknowledged what you are feeling, now follow the next step.

2) Think about what is really making you angry.
After you know what it is, ask yourself again why that is happening. Keep questioning your answer until you have reached the root of your problem. Sometimes it’s necessary to keep questioning your answer because the true reason might not always be the first thing you think about.

3) After you’ve understood where your anger is coming from, take action to be set free. Call The Universal Church in your area and speak to one of our pastors or pastor’s wives. They will teach you how to use your faith until you have overcome your problem. No appointment, no cost, just stop by any day of the week and we will be happy to assist you. Change doesn’t happen overnight but it will take place. Just believe.
