Chapter 2: Understand How Fear Can Lead to Anger
As mentioned before in this book, anger is classed as a secondary emotion which means that there is some other emotion that a person experiences which in turn leads to anger. One common primary emotion that leads to anger is fear. There is nothing we can really do to stop this as it is hard wired into our brain as part of our flight or fight system. Fight or flight is where you brain makes a snap second decision to either run from danger or stand your ground and fight the danger away. Fight or flight will initially be felt as fear as this is what will trigger it and then it will either remain fear or it will quickly turn to rage.
People are capable of doing some very amazing things when they are in fear. People are also known to have large amounts of strength while they are fearful and some people may even black out. If you mix any of these effects of fear with anger you are sure to come up with an outcome that you do not want. It is highly important that you are aware of ways in which you can control your anger, even in fearful situations. Remember, you always want to be in control of your emotions and never let your emotions control you.
The following chapter will discuss the relation between fear and anger. The purpose of this is so that you can gain a better understanding of what it is that you need to do in order to get back in control of your emotions as well as your life.
Fear and Anger
Many people are not aware of how deeply intertwined fear and anger truly are. Some of the world’s most renowned psychologists and therapists believe that fear and anger are nearly the same emotion. It is true that they are entirely two different emotions but they do have many similarities. As well, you almost will never feel one without the other, they basically go hand in hand with each other.
There are situations in life that we may not be sure of how to deal with. It is your brains natural defense to become angry in order to shield you from what you are afraid of. A perfect example would be a child who is asked a teacher a question about a math problem in front of the entire class.
If the child does not know the answer it would be much easier for them to act out and get sent out of class then to have to face their fear and admit that they do not know the answer. This is an example of your brain using anger as a way to cope with fear. It all ties back to that little thing we spoke of before called flight or fight.
Another good example of a common mistake that people make when they are fearful is in relationships. In many cases, if a person in a relationship is scared that the other person may not being faithful they may become angry out of their fear.
They may begin to mistreat the person for something that they are not even doing. In the long run this will almost surely always lead to a loss in a relationship as your significant other will eventually get tired of being blamed for things they are not doing and being mistreated. It is important that you get control of your anger before situations such as these begin to take place, if they have not already.
Many psychologists believe that people with chronic anger have some type of deep underlying fear that they are not able to address and that is why they are in the emotional state that they are. You need to find the true meaning of what your emotions are telling you. Learn to listen to yourself, are you really angry or are you scared? You are the only one who will be able to properly answer this question, remember to be honest with yourself.

Many people are well aware of the effects that depression can have on their lives. Every aspect of your life can be affected and things seem as if they just get worse and worse. The worse things get the more depressed you get and thus begins the endless cycle.
It can sometimes feel like there is no way out of depression so many people choose to just give up. They get tired of the daily struggle of trying to cope with all of the stress and conflict in their life and choose not to fight the depression any longer.
Depression tends to cause a person to completely change after enduring it for long periods of time. You will notice that they begin to form a completely different personality. The ambition and the drive that they had at one time may vanish and you will notice that they seem as if they no longer care about what happens in life.

It is very important that you know how to limit the amount of anger you feel and are aware of ways in which to direct your anger in positive ways in order to better your life. Taking your anger out in negative ways will only lead to more problems in your life which will in turn just lead to more depression.

Keep in mind that you attract in to your life what you project. In other words, if you are constantly projecting angry vibes and signals, you will have nothing but the same type of vibes and signals come back your way.
