It is a part of a bigger picture, let us think about the emotional experience we go through on our daily basis, the ups and downs we go through, feeling anxious, angry, afraid, sad, surprised, happy, etc. It is part of our instinct to live all these kinds of feelings to add colors to our life however when emotions interfere with our behaviors and functions it could be a sign of a mental problem. Factors such as genetic, daily stresses, and life circumstances can contribute to having a common mental disorder like depression and anxiety, which is known as mood disorders.
