What was the darkest depression in your life and what have you learned from it?( i admire your courage )

I know that from tragedy has come a lot of happiness.
I know that no trees can stretch its branches in the heaven before its roots in the hell.
I guess i am young and not experienced,of course i have been through difficulties and struggles,but they are just small ones.
I would love to see someone share his/her experience with me,i am always perpared to listen.
And remember,everyone has his own depression,you are not alone.
I appreciate your participation,one really needs courage to talk about this.

    Oct 1 2013: Struggling with the "why's" in life. Why does my education matter? Why does succeeding make a difference if all my success is at the cost of others? Why am I deemed inadequate for some people? Why are other people deemed inadequate? Why is the richest person more respected than the one who is truly happy? I could go on and on. I entered the worst moments of my life attempting to solve these questions after some particular tragedy.

      Life is always like this:
      You struggle,and you grow.
      And you struggle,and you grow.
      And you struggle,and you grow.
