Often confused with sadness.

Depression is extreme sadness prolonged over an abnormal period of time. You lose interest in the things you used to enjoy participating in, and detach yourself from the ones you love.

Sadness is momentarily being upset or effected by something.
John used to love hanging out with his friends and playing baseball, but ever since his mother passed away, he sank into a depression and didn't enjoy these things anymore.
