What is depression?

I once read a saying
“Before you decide you feel depressed,ask yourself whether you are not spending too much time with assholes”
Please excuse the rude term
but i wonder,how depression comes about from environmental factors;
-Lack of ability to communicate your emotions and receive feedback
-Alienation
-lack of sun
-A negative social circle of emotional vampires at home or at a work place or socially.
Before you swallow pills,ask yourself:
-How much do i know about my condition?Have i researched the  diagnosis mechanism and have i explored alternative methods such as a behavioristic or cognitive approach before being medicated and if i am taking medication:
-does it help?
-am i suffering too many side effects?
-can i honestly assess my situation and do i have a reliable therapist i trust to look out for my best interest?
