Depression is a word commonly associated with emotions that encourage it. Commonly, depression is used to describe the aftermath or late symptom of something, like death in the family. For some reason, depression induces more of what the depression came from in the first place. In example, if someone developed depression from guilt, chances are depression will make them feel more guilty than they were before.
Assume that you got someone fired from a job they really needed. At first, you'd just feel guilty. Over time it may heal up, but for some reason, at some point or another something will rear the guilt back up. Only the guilt will have gained enough strength to induce depression as a resulting symptom to guilt.

*make sure you understand that everyone suffers from depression in different ways.*

I like to classify it into two cattegories
either caused by trauma
or embeded into your chemical make-up and hereditory

usually depression caused by trauma will go away sometime, depending on how badly traumatized the person was.

usually when depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain, it will never really go away. it will stay with you for the rest of your life, but can be treated by anti-depressants so you barely notice it if youre on a good one!

both are awful things to deal with.

with a case of depression, one can see some sort of doctor and the doctor will or will not perscribe a medication such as prozac depending on what he/she thinks.
human1: i am taking prozac because of my depression.
human2: right on!

man1: omg im so depressed today
man2: why
man1: man cause i got a bad haircut
man2: dude.youre not depressed..

The state of being in absolute sadness. Usually occurring when constantly being friend-zoned, unable to be respected, or being left out. There are many cures for this, but sometimes if it is not treated, it could result in Chronic Depression, which could lead to worse effects, such as isolation, or suicide.
"My girlfriend broke up with me, now I am currently in depression"
"He's always getting bullied, i'm so concerned if he's depressed right now, maybe I should talk to him."
"My family is in deep depression because we have alot of problems occurring right now

A really really fucked up mental illness/ mental disorder, usually accompanied by anxiety disorder which causes a person to have an uncontrollable paranoia. Depression is a lack of hormones and imbalance of chemicals in the brain. Depression makes a person weak, lazy, and very very pessimist. This shit should not be underestimated, It drains all your energy and your vision of your life.

Common Myths/ Misconception:

Depression can be cured through will and positive thinking
Depression is only in your brain, it is not a mental illness go to a bar have sex then you will be cured.
Depression is just an excuse for being lazy

MAJOR BULLSHIT! Depression is an actual MENTAL ILLNESS.
Because of depression Dave never go to a party.
Because of depression Alfred didn't apply for a job.
