I tend to be quite good at controlling my emotions, and being able to see the optimistic side of things when I want to. Sadly this means that I don't really understand people who are constantly down, or what it feels like to be them.

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.


I'd say I agree with this though, and when causes of sadness are simpler, I can often offer some useful advice to help them and cheer them up. But when people are existentially depressed or disillusioned with the world, I don't think I or anyone else knows the answer to their problems, so instead I offer to try to make them laugh, since just because the world is empty doesn't mean you can't laugh about it right :P

Angry people are much more easy to deal with I think. Usually they are offended, or think you or someone else is trying to attack (verbally or physically) them or intimidate them, so they are acting aggressively out of defensiveness. All you have to do is show them that you are a friend, that you respect them, and that you mean them no harm, and they usually calm down pretty quick (once again, laughter is the key to solving emotional conflicts). Most angry people I've encountered are only angry in the moment and don't actually want to be angry, so when you relieve them of it they are happy and somewhat grateful. People who are perpetually angry are a bit tougher and take some talking to, but are more like the sad people I think (also they are less violent usually).

It's hard to say. I wouldn't go out of my way to cheer them up, but I wouldn't mind trying to some times. It really depends what type of person it is and what the reasons are. Some people are depress over silly reasons.

i usually get along with depressed people because im depressed to and most depressed people i tend to meet are anime freaks or gamer freaks so that's probably why i get along. plus some times depressed girls have a cute look to them for me at least but then again im weird.

I think angry people should take a lesson in managing their inner rage or something.

As for depression, I tend to avoid people like this. Mainly because I've gone through it a long time ago and drove myself out of it without the help of medication or therapy. Everytime I see someone who acts or even admits that they are depressed, I tend to feel no sympathy for them; so I avoid them in order to keep myself from saying anything to them that might do harm.

as a person diagnosed with recurring Major Depression & Bipolar, i can say that i am empathetic. the mental hospital/state took away my right to own a gun/have a job with a gun b/c i could be dangerous to myself/others (i get scary when i'm angry). i know depression. i know anger. another side to it is that i know myself well enough to surround myself with those who make healthy choices, especially others with mental illness. i.e. i could be friends with someone who is far enough along in their recovery to not hurt themselves, but i don't think it would be healthy for me to be around someone displaying symptoms of severe depression because it may trigger me as well. my road to recovery has been long & hard, so i feel for others when i see they share that struggle.

because of this, i am bothered by people casually using the term "depression". being sad & having depression are completely different. there's so much ignorance & stigma surrounding mental illness...

"Hey, what's that," while staring in a direction. "No, not that, that." Then put only one finger where their heart is and say, "Oho, so you are sad. Can't have that now." The rest depends on what happens next.
