There are different types of depression.

It is a feeling of hopelessness with no vigour for life. Usually accompanied with extreme anxiety, over-analysis of past situations. There is always a cause.
A child living in an abusive family with no way out and/or being bullied may feel extremely anxious and alone and attention seek to obtain the love they are not getting at home, either by cutting or fighting or being a drama queen or getting obsessive over things or looking for an older partner to take of her.
A rape victim or person from a sexually abusive relationship may have a more hidden type of depression where they plan to kill themselves but pretend to be happy and normal on the outside around those closest to them following the rape. A survivor of rape, several years on might be more open about his or her feelings in regard to this and show more obvious signs of their depression.
Someone who has experienced an abortion as the result of sexual abuse might have a long term alienation and confusion over their life and a more subtle form of ongoing depression they don't really talk about.
A lot of people with depression are considered selfish and self-centred, which is an ignorant way of looking at that person. If someone has horrendous problems, of course they're going to be depressed over them.

when all the air is sucked out of your lungs in one moment
and as you try to gasp for air, depression pulls you back under.

"It's like drowning, and you're screaming at the people who walk past you, but they don't even realize that you're slowly dying."

"so pretty dark, yeah?"

For the people saying that people with depression will slit their wrists, have suicidal thoughts, and dress black, that may be true for some people but it's most definitely not for all.
Depression is also NOT a "side affect of being a teenager" I've met my fair share of teenagers who claim to be depressed but in all actuality they are just said that the boy they like didn't like them back. Teenagers, adults, and children can be depressed.

It is also not a joke, it's not something you can snap out of. Depression is a very real thing that hurts more than anything. It changes the way people live, they eat less, or more, they may gain or lose weight, they just don't have a reason, or can't seem to find a reason to smile. Crying sometimes is all that they can do, or lay in bed when they used to hang out with friends or do sports or anything. Depression is not a choice. Depression is real, and it is an indescribable feeling of sadness and emptiness and guilt. (Emo and depressed are not the same thing)
"why are you sad?"

"I don't know"
"It's okay you can tell me"
"I really don't know I just don't have a reason to smile right now"
"Depression?"
"I guess.."

Everyone around you is breathing so easily, and you sit alone gasping for air. No one bothers to check if you need help because why would you? why would anyone need help with all this air? And you keep on choking and gasping watching everyone breathing easily.
person1:Do you think there is something wrong with her? like depression maybe?
person 2:Why would there be? Life is so good!

It doesn't fucking mean you have depression because just because something went wrong and now you're crying and it's not fun. Depression isn't just a one time thing, stop thinking it's so amazing because it's not. It ruins peoples lives and it scars them, it literally, physically scars them. Stop glamorizing it, it's a mental illness and stop thinking it's so great. Respect people with depression because unless you've ever had it or know somebody who does you have no idea what they're going through.
Person 1: I have depression
Person 2: really?
Person 1: yeah I cried last night
Person 2: do you cry alot?
Person 1: lol no I love my life
Person 2: *facepalm*
