Anger is a basic emotion that helps us know when something is wrong, when something has hurt us, or when something threatens our safety.
The causes of anxiety may be conscious or unconscious. Your experience might include distractedness, confusion, trouble thinking, anticipated rejection or abandonment, a sense of being lost, overwhelmed, or engulfed, and intense panic.

When we lose something, we often feel a sense of hurt. Hurt lets us know that what we lost was meaningful or important. Although the hurt can fade with time, sometimes loss leaves us feeling empty or broken. These feelings of grief can keep us from living the life we want or need.
Group psychotherapy involves several patients gathering together with a therapist to talk, support one another, and share a common experience in a safe setting.

The internalization of fear and negative judgment can amplify and reinforce external social pressures, creating intense suffering.

When we are physically harmed, our bodies go through a process of repair and restructuring. Bones fuse back together, cuts coagulate and scab, and bruises swell. Although our bodies are quite good at healing themselves over time, some injuries tend to endure.

Kathryn Levison, BA
One of the most widely studied personality styles, no discourse on a depressive personality’s approach to coping with life can be all-inclusive. Even author and psychoanalyst Nancy McWilliams wrote twice as much on depression as all the other chapters in her reference text, Psychoanalytic diagnosis.
