Have you ever went from sad to angry?

I have had a lot of things happen in my life over the past few years. At first when I started having problems I just felt really sad and depressed about it. Sad that things I hoped for weren't coming out like I would like them to. Now I have reached a point where I'm angry and I know that it is time to just let somethings in my life go so that I can move on and be happier in other ways.

Yes I have gone from sad to angry and I have also flip flopped back and forth between the two. I think the best way to be is angry though. The anger gives you the courage to change things and make your life better. The sadness just weighs you down and makes you feel like curling up into a ball and letting life slip by. I think that you should move on and make yourself happier. Hugs to you.

I completely agree with you. Anger does give us courage and strength to make changes. I have noticed that in my life as well. Thanks! I will keep working on making my life better and being happy about what I'm doing and what I hope to accomplish.

I have had such momemnts in my life where I am sad... I have had times that i felt there's no where to go and that I feel im on the edge. I guess sometimes its just our own ways to cope and our ways to go about what we think we should do. I havent been angry as much though because I never really found someone to blame and I do not find that a habit to blame others.

Yes, I can relate to how you have felt. It can be so overwhelming to be at that point. We definitely do have to come up with our own ways of coping with different situations in our life.

This morning I watched some news on TV when I noticed a woman whose house was destroyed in the big earthquake on April 20th.What's worse,she didn't receive the pensions from the government because of the bad traffic condition in the area.However,she didn't get sad or angry.And instead,she organized her neighbors to overcome the troubles they were facing together.She smiled to the TV reporter,saying,"No matter you smile or not,a day will pass. So why not smile to our life?" It moved me deeply.In our daily life,we will sometimes complain about something imperfect.However,there's seldom anything perfect in our life,and we have to face all kinds of imperfect things in our life. So why not make yourself smile to the sunshine?Why not enjoy the cool wind and the fresh air in the morning? Life will be better as long as you enjoy it.

That is a good thought that this lady has brought out. Time keeps going, we will experience hard times so we might as well just smile. It is no fun to live our life with a lot of negativity surrounding us. Just appreciating small things is so important.

i had a very turbulent and passionate relationship with an EX years ago. whenever we had our fights and we wouldn't see each other for a few days, i would get lonely and cry myself out. however, as the days would pass and he wouldn't call or visit, i would get real mad at him. it was the constant love-hate that made us tired of the relationship and in the end we called it quits.

Yeah that would have been frustrating. It is hard with a relationship. Because we do come to love the person we are with and it is hard to let go of it when we know that things are bad. Sometimes we have to take that first step in realizing that things in the relationship are really bad and that it doesn't benefit either persons.

Yeah, that happens to me sometimes mostly whenever something frustrates me. At one time, students evaluated my teaching and became very personal. They filled the evaluation sheets very negatively and it made me sad ~ then made me angry that they were so pretentious. They pretended to be okay with me in class but said thing in the evaluation that really insulted me. Anyhow, I don't like that feeling and I do hope that we don't need to go through such again. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

Sorry to hear that some students made negative comments about you in their evaluation. That would make me feel similar as you did. I also hope that you will not have to go through something like that again.

When you get to a point of being angry about something you need to realize that everything happens for a reason. Also, you need to think positive for good things to happen in your life. Don't let the negative energy into your mind. Just think of good and positive stuff and you will begin to see changes in your life. You seriously need to read the book "The Secret" this book will help you in your everyday life and getting to the place you wish to get too. Good luck and God Bless!

I will definitely keep working on thinking positive. It is not an easy thing to do but it definitely can make us feel better about our situation in life and what we would like to do. I have read a little of "the secret" book and made notes about the things that I appreciate. I enjoy reading books like that.

For some, that is what I would like to call bipolar. For others like myself, it's just a state of mind. I used to let situations get to me to the point where I would go from one emotion to another. Why? because I would sit and marinate on the situation. It's all about thought process, how you handle situations as they come along, and how you let them go.Being that person who sees the silver lining in every situation isn't an easy thing, I admire those who have the ability to embrace the positive side of everything.

Yeah a lot of the time it is best that we let things go and do our best to move on. Dealing on things too long and too often can have a negative affect. I know it is good to at least figure out how we feel about all that is happening in our life, and what we want to do about it but we don't want to let it consume us.

Yeah that is a good situation.It is hard to make it through tough times when so many things are happening in our life. I'm learning though to take things slowly. Just deal with certain things and situations as they come.
