“What do you have to be depressed about?!” would be high on the list of things NOT to say. Yes, occasional depression is normal, but anything lasting longer than two weeks is not. Be gentle and take people seriously when they trust you enough to share their thoughts regarding depression. Too many people die because no one took them seriously, or because “friends” and “loved ones” abandoned them completely.
