This question does not relate to personal situations and medical advice that I am seeking for. I know very little about psychology and have suspicions that I'll want to confirm that if it is a possibility, or any other causes of.
For this scenario, a person wants to, and let's say needs to feel anger or aggression, in a self-defence reason, but can't. Instead of this, they feel the need to 'runaway' or 'cry', or they have a feeling of 'deep, uneasy sadness'.
Could this be caused by an earlier suffered depression, which included major agression issues, and since the depression totally healed away, the agression could have totally disappeared as well? Even unwillingly?
Even if depression has nothing to do with it, what could be other possible causes? Is it possible to restore the controlled aggression that was present prior to the depression? Could this be a cause of 'drug misuse' in the sense of taking in high levels of nicotone, caffeine, taurine, certain vitamins or lack of them for example alcohol and/or certain hormones?
One thing, I'd really want to mention is that I do understand that agression is not a good thing. Yes, I wrote "not a good thing" because it's not a bad thing either, a person will frequently need it to defend themselves, from other agressors that will try to overpower you and showing yourself weak will only do worse.
