These situations are hard to deal with, depending on what caused it, but no matter what, I don't go psycho about it. Normally, I play guitar or listen to music. That normally takes the anger out of me.

What do you tend to do normally?

I just storm to my room,cry because life's not fair and then listen to Green Day to calm myself down.....On the 21st Century Breakdown disc,I tend to avoid to listen to track 14....

And apparently Graceful is still alive after a very long hiatus ♥

Embrace the emotions for what they are and enjoy it, is what I do.

I try to calm my emotions down with a bit of meditating. Sleep will probably take care of some other part of my emotions afterwards. Resolving the situation in which caused me to feel angry/depressed is the biggest part to making me feel better. :D

go ahead. fly. take flight. no one can tell you otherwise, right?

I usually just keep it in. I know its not good for me but I don't really like to show emotion. My friends always told me if you do you show your weak points.

I beat the crap outta X enemy on a video game, or I go up to the fish pond in my back garden and sit there for a while. ^_^ Going to my room and punching pillows also helps, as does sleeping. When I wake up, I don't feel so bad. 8D

Nothing. I've become so numb to those emotions they don't even bother me anymore. The feeling feels like "*Shrug*"

Frustrated: usually, I go back to what I was doing. I tend to only get frustrated if I'm interrupted while doing something I feel is important. And then, it only lasts for the duration of the interruption.

Depressed: I haven't gotten seriously depressed for years, since back when I was being (falsely) medicated for it (funny story; turns out anti-depressants have the opposite effect on children and that doctors aren't even supposed to prescribe them for kids, not to mention that I didn't need them to begin with). I'd usually just lay in bed if I was depressed and go to sleep; by the time I woke up, I was usually over it.

Edit: oh, come to think of it, I was depressed when my ex broke up with me. Yeah, I just kind of slept it off, now that I think about it.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

For both I tend to just pick up a video game and play, taking breaks to check email or something, but for the most part I just hole myself up in my room for a bit until I calm down or feel better. As with all negative emotions I just kind of ignore them till they go away. Probably not healthy but it seems to work! :D

So yes, video games are great distractions 'cause you can immerse yourself in something else entirely and take your mind off things for a while and sometimes, when you go back to think about it, it's not nearly as upsetting as it was at first.

I'm a pretty passive person. If I'm genuinely upset, I'll run to the DVD player and pop in Arrested Development.

Like Noodle, I'm a pretty passive person. When I'm upset enough to actually be crying, I usually hide my face in a pillow and then fall asleep or start wailing on my best friend Dan until he stops me and makes that face he does that just... makes everything better.

When I'm depressed, I just continue life. Often I'll start talking to someone on MSN and forget all about it. As for angry, I go and play Call of Duty. xD
it's not about forcing happiness
it's about not letting sadness win

When I'm depressed or angry, I try to get as far away from whatever is upsetting me as possible. Whether that entails taking a walk, taking a drive, or just locking myself in my room, I do whatever it takes to be alone with my thoughts. It's funny how most people suggest talking things out, but I think that would just enrage me even more in most situations. :x

Good thing it usually takes quite a bit before I'm truly angry or depressed. I'm generally an easy-going guy.

For anger, I either go to the gym and punch the **** out of the punching bags or take it out in a violent video game.

For depression, I usually come here or watch random crap on YouTube in order to get my mind off of it. ^_^

When I am depressed:

Talk about it.

When I am mad:

Punch soft stuff and curse at them because it makes me feel better.

I have a habit of pushing people away when I get angry or upset. Hahah, I should learn how to stop doing that. :[

I like cleaning when I'm upset for some reason, and listening to music helps the mood.

I rarely get angry or upset, unless it's been built up from other incidents that have upsetted me and then all exploding in one go.. Which isn't... a very good thing to do.

If I'm angry with my family, I tend to go over the top and become aggresive. I don't react at all like this when I'm angry with other people, I tend to just leave. When I'm feeling depressed, I tend to just leave as well.
