The worst emotion you could ever feel. Every day becomes a living hell and you wonder if you have a purpose on this earth and why you should even be alive anyway. Depression will cause you to be on the edge of tears every minute of the day, and you eventually just stop caring about everything. Relationships suffer, friendships end, and suddenly you feel alone and there's no one but depression to keep you company. Sometimes depression is mistaken for melodrama, and the person who you think is crying for attention is actually screaming on the inside. Depressed people wish they could end the agony, but can't because there aren't many alternatives.
Depression usually doesn't have just one cause. It's a whole load of little problems that pile up after an unspecific length of time(depending on the problems, and how long you've kept your feelings bottled up inside) and eventually grow to become unbearable. You feel trapped and you want out but there's no way out, and every single simple everyday task like waking up and going to school becomes futile in your mind.
Just as I was reading these definitions for the same word, there were tears rolling down my face. Looks like I've got depression again. This is pathetic.

When you've felt like the world has been against you for so long, that you've become numb to everything.
It's not a joke.

A place that can only be seen by those that have had their wings broken and have fallen below the clouds. The ground there is dark, and damp, and cold. The air there makes your mouth stick together like mud, making it physically hard to speak, and it freezes your bones, making it near impossible for them to move. The people that still live above the clouds call out to you, they say "don't sit around like that, can't you see how beautiful the sun is? Be grateful!" When they do not understand that you cannot see the sun, only the underside of the clouds. It is possible to get out of this place once you are there, many people just have to wait for their wings to heal, and then remember how to fly again to get into the sunlight. But many also rot like a sitting hen after their wings have healed, for they do not remember how to fly even if it is possible, or they get lost on their way up and decide it too scary, only to plummet down again. The only way back up from there is if someone who can fly decides to come down and carry you up, but it this world, that is one in a million.
"Depression is like a dark, ongoing tunnel. You just stop because you don't see the point when you can't see the light at the end."

Every day, minute, SECOND, is painful. You have hate and pain running through your veins constantly that it controls you. Every cell in your body hates your existence and screams at you to end it all. You constantly think and wonder WHY!? Why were you the one who ended up in this life. Why did you grow up to be the miserable one.

Every night is long and dark, as you lie awake and feel too afraid to sleep, but in too much pain to remain conscious. Every morning you wake up and the familiar dark thoughts envelop you as you realize you have to exist for another horrible day.

It is a feeling of absolute loneliness. You feel that you have no one, yet everyone else has everyone. You look around at all the people you know enjoying friends and family and relationships andwonder why you're alone. Just so utterly alone.

You constantly think "Why am I still here? What am I doing?"... You wish you could just exist in a world of sleep where you didn't really have to live or think or breathe. Nothing makes sense to you or gives you comfort except for the concept of non-existence... Suicide. Suicide is the only thing that makes sense to you. Non-existence seems like the only sensible solution. You despise every second you exist on Earth.
Its like looking at the world through a camera lens, but the lens has a filter on it to make every single thing you see and experience look disgusting, terrible, dark, awful, hateful. depression

A mental disorder that is really hard and not your fault. It gets better and you will be better. It takes time and one step at a time, and sure you'll fall but eventually you will get back up. You are not alone. You are not the only one. And even though I don't know you, I am here for you and wishing you well. I love you!
