The main reason I got depressed was..
I WASN’T GETTING ANGRY! Apparently anger that’s suppressed isn’t good. For the large portion of the past few years I got really good at 4 things that lead me to get depressed.
1) Justifying why someone would do something that angered me
2) Seeing anger as being emotionally and spiritually immature
3) I have rarely seen anger modeled in a healthy way
4) Rushing to forgiveness without first validating my own anger and finding a healthy way to let it out.
In order to get to joy there’s often other things we have to walk through. In my next post I’ll share how i’ve been processing my anger.
I hope this helps!
