Answer
Dear Apsara,
Thank you for your letter.
The world is quite depressing lately, and as it always is to some extent. A certain level of depression may be considered normal, but if your depression is so severe it's interrupting your life, I recommend doing something about it.
I want to recommend starting with my book, Dreaming Peace: Your Thoughts Can Change the World.
It tells the history of positive thinking, including the most influential authors. After reading my book for an overview, you might want to pick up books by the other best authors.
I have temporarily posted it free as my free book of the month here: http://surrealist.org/freebook/
If you want to buy it, it's available as a Kindle at Amazon.
When it comes to anger, the best expert I have found is Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Listening to his audiobook, "Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames," turned my thoughts around on the subject. I recommend listening to it. Thich Nhat Hanh also has books on anger.
Please write back if you want to discuss further,
Sincerely,
Nori
