Hey guys, there are plenty of topics of what you do when you feel this way, but I haven't particularly seen how it feels on the ofher end of the spectrum. So out of curiosity, I was wandering how everyone feels when you meet someone that seems always down or bitter or combative? How do you first react?

If this a repeat or out place, feel free to do whatever with it.

People who are depressed- Whatever.
People who are bitter- Shut up.
People who are angry- Calm down.
People who are combative- Go away.

I always just try to help out people who are out of place. Though, sometimes when i'm in a bad mood I tend to be annoyed by them and avoid them.

Humans are diverse animals and everyone is deserving of love and tolerance. We all go through stuff and if someone is depressed, be kind. If someone is combative, get the heck outta the way!lol. I aspire to be patient with the world and try to be a good listener too.

Generally I try to be patient, and if I start to loose my patience I try to remind myself that, "You were ,and in a lot of ways still are, worse than they; so what right do you have to complain?" And if I think I might be able to help I will. Unfortunately there are a good number of people that cannot be helped (at least at that moment, people can change with time) because they are dishonest with themselves. Example: The person who seems to get angered or saddened by almost anything, but refuses to address what caused their initial emotional distress.

I should frequent forums more often. I like hearing these diverse opinions.

I asked as well because I walk both roads trying help, but at the same time one of the aforementioned groups.

Only if I know them on a friendly level, then I'm more than gladly to try and help as best as I can. If I don't know them well enough or at all, then it's just either whatever or leave me alone.

For angry people, I try to avoid them (since there are so many crazies out there )

Its always hard to be empathetic towards someone who is never in a good mood, or someone who always finds a reason to get angry, or to be dramatic and get depressed. Then again, there are times when you are depressed or angry, and you know its not easy for others to understand why you feel that way. Truly understanding the motives behind peoples behavior is something we just can't do easily. Sometimes people really are mad for no reason, but thats not how they see it... in my opinion, a lot of this goes along with someones intelligence level and personality. If there's someone who is known to be intelligent, and for some reason they are always angry/depressed, why do you think that is? Most likely, it's something like this: The more intelligent you are, the more you come to learn how ugly this world really is. plus, a myriad of other possibilities. On the flipside, if someone is depressed/angry constantly, and they're a total dumbass, then thats different. Some people in this world are so stupid that they take out their anger on the rest of the world because they are confused, deluded, and maybe they have this misconception that nothing is their fault, it's always everyone else's fault, etc.... Which is completely wrong, but not to say that smart people have an excuse to be rude. There really are a lot of reasons to be angry and sad in this world, but whether one specific opinion is right or wrong can be very subjective dependent on the situation, which is where personality comes into play, but i wont get into that. Ive dealt with a lot of angry/sad people in my life, and I've always tried to stay reserved in my opinions of them. I've been an angry/sad person in the past, so i try to be understanding. but we can never fully understand, so i try to take it with a grain of salt. I have my own life to focus on. And there really are a lot of people out there who like to be angry for no reason, so I just ignore them.

I hide my crippling depression behind a mask anyway, thus it's highly unlikely that unless you knew me very well that you could tell I was bloody depressed.
But for people who are public and always moaning about it I can't help but think just keep it to yourself.

~ o,..,o ~ The subject of depression and angry is complex because there may be different causes for such behavior. One would have to observe each person individually for the cause. Depression can be caused by physical problems like a chemical imbalance in the brain. Which some are born with or it was induced by an accident that causes trauma to the brain that changes things. Then there is environmental causes, which can be because of an emotional trauma caused by violent incidents in a family setting or in school or just about anywhere where a person encounters a situation that affects them to a point of causing serious depression and anger episodes. Bad programming or mentoring by parents and other family or friends can also cause a person to have low self esteem that leads to serious depression. Some depression is relationship oriented. I have suffered that type of depression several times in my life. i can almost say i had the environmental too. Bad programming by my dad didn't help either.

It depends on how the angry people act. After a while it'll become tiresome if they keep going at it all the time.

I personally never told any one my friends that I had depression and it was like that for two years. If the person is open about the depression and the hardships, I'd be there to support not matter what since I know what it's like.

Fair point. Most times I don't like to talk about my own depression or show it. And I have found myself thinking the same many a time.

As someone who suffers from depression, it sucks. There aren't many things that feel worse than unwarranted misery.
