look up any word, like bae:
Depression is a horrible thing that can occur due to many reasons:

1: Bipolar Disorder
2: Having no friends
3: Bullies
4: Or every day just seems like a bad day to you

Sometimes you might feel like everyone is against you, sometimes you just want to go away and be alone until you die, and sometimes you really try making friends, but the assholes in your school couldn't care less if you were dead..

The best thing to do if you have a depressed friend, is not avoid them, this will make them even more depressed and lead them to suicide/ homicide. Don't tell them to "cheer up", because that reminds them of how sad they really are, and all that does is make them even more upset. That's like telling a person with Cancer to stop being sick. You should talk to that friend about why he/she's upset. Ask them about how they're feeling, and try to cheer them up, instead of telling them to do it on their own. It's not easy getting out of the deep, dark pits of depression by yourself, the only way to do it is if your friends will help you. You could easily save your friends life, because most depressed people show it clearly that they are depressed. All it takes is 5 simple words to start a conversation that could completely change this person's day from being a terrible day, to a great day: "Why are you so sad?".

About 276,000 Teenagers attempt suicide each year, and 5000 of them succeed!
Girl: What's wrong? Why are you feeling so bad?

Depressed Guy: No girl will ever date me, and everyone hates me. I have no friends, maybe I should just kill myself and get myself out of everyone's way. This depression is going to make me sad for the rest of my life...

Girl: Don't say that! Every girl in the school talks about how sweet and cute you are. If you kill yourself, I would never be happy again!

Depressed Guy: I have no reason to live, every day is the same thing: Get out of bed, go to school, go home feeling like dying. I haven't smiled in a very long time, and all of these people telling me to cheer up isn't making it any better. I don't know why people don't like me, I try my hardest to make friends, and I just go home with the same feeling every time, I always want to cry myself to sleep. The cycle doesn't end, until I finally pull the trigger.

Girl: Please don't kill yourself! You're an amazing person! You're smart, funny, cute, and talented, and if nobody else can see that, then that is their loss. I love you, and I never want to see you sad ever again!

Depressed Guy: Ok, thank you for the inspiration for me to live another day!

Girl: I'll see you at school tomorrow, and you can sit by me at lunch and we'll talk about this, ok?

Symptons of depression:

1~sadness, tearfulness, crying, frequently showing pervasive sadness by wearing black clothes, writing poetry with morbid themes, or having a preoccupation with music that has nihilistic themes. Also, crying for no apparent reason.

2~hopelessness feeling that life is not worth living or worth the effort to even maintain their appearance or hygiene. They may believe that a negative situation will never change and be pessimistic about their future.

3~less interest in activities; or not enjoying previously favorite activities dropping out of clubs, sports, and other activities. Not much seems fun anymore.

4~persistent boredom; low energy Lack of motivation and lowered energy level is reflected by missed classes or not going to school. A drop in grade averages can be equated with loss of concentration and slowed thinking.

5~social isolation, poor communication lacking connection with friends and family. avoiding family gatherings and events. Teens who used to spend a lot of time with friends may now spend most of their time alone and without interests. not sharing feelings with others, believing that you are alone in the world and no one is listening to you or even cares about you.

6~low self esteem and guilt assuming blame for negative events or circumstances. you may feel like a failure and have negative views about their competence and self-worth. you feel as if you are not "good enough."

7~extreme sensitivity to rejection or failure believing that you are unworthy, becoming even more depressed with every supposed rejection or lack of success.

8~increased irritability, anger, or hostility often irritable, taking out most of the anger on your family. you may attack others by being critical, sarcastic, or abusive. you may feel u must reject ur family before their family rejects them.

9~difficulty with relationships you may suddenly have no interest in maintaining friendships. you'll stop calling and visiting their friends. u also may have lost a loved one or had a bad relationship with ur bf/gf

10~frequent complaints of physical illnesses, such as headaches and stomachaches complaining about lightheadedness or dizziness, being nauseous, and back pain. Other common complaints include headaches, stomachaches, vomiting, and menstrual problems.

11~frequent absences from school or bad performance in school causing trouble at home or at school. Because u may not always seem sad, parents and teachers may not realize that the behavior problem is a sign of depression.

12~poor concentration having trouble concentrating on schoolwork, following a conversation, or even watching television.

13~a major change in eating and/or sleeping patterns Sleep disturbance may show up as all-night television watching, having a hard time getting up for school, or sleeping during the day. Loss of appetite may become anorexia or bulimia. Eating too much may result in weight gain and obesity.

14~talk of or efforts to run away from home Running away is usually a cry for help. This may be the first time the parents realize that their child has a problem and needs help.

15~thoughts or expressions of suicide or self-destructive behavior saying u want to be dead or talk about suicide.

16~alcohol and Drug Abuse using alcohal or other drugs as a way to feel better.

17~self-injury having difficulty talking about their feelings may show their emotional tension, physical discomfort, pain and low self-esteem with self-injurious behaviors, such as cutting.
The definition is enough.

A feeling which makes you think there is no hope, no way to survive, and no point in carrying on this charade you calla a life. A feeling which is so emotionaly pressing, you feel as if you're going to explode with tears.
If you cry every night, but have no reason to cry, you may be suffering from clinical depression.

The worst possible emotion you can feel. Makes you feel like theres no reason to do anything, and if its really bad, no reason to live. Can be very hard to overcome or sometimes just passes randomly.
Depression is a fucking bitch and i curse my humanity for being able to feel it.

anger without enthusiasm

A state of altered perception where one sees the world as bleak and dark. Feelings and actions such as purposelessness, disinterest, low self esteem, self-harm, pessimism, suicidal thoughts or tendencies and a lack of motivation or energy may accompany it. It is not simply the feeling of being sad, but is a lasting state of mind that could be caused by a number of factors. Many health problems lead to depression, poor sleeping habits or eating habits, stress, drugs. Somebody who lives a life of abuse or poverty would be a victim of depression. Clinical depression is a very serious problem, and those who have it should seek help. Often it is difficult to recognise due to the numbness it can bring, and usually people are not willing to admit when they are depressed. Depression is difficult to imagine when one is not depressed, and can therefore fall under the critical eye as something that does not exist and something people only whine about because they have nothing better to do. Nobody can know for certain what another person is feeling, so it is not something anybody can judge.
Your next door neighbour seems happy and normal. You find out he has killed himself. Nobody had suspected his depression, but he has been feeling alienated and could find no sense of living, the pain and torment he was secretly feeling were too much to take.
