It is true that people who tend to obsess about themselves get depressed more. But it is something that most people who are prone to depression cannot help without help from others through psychotherapy or medication. Plus sometimes brains just get wired wrongly, and you need effort to get that right. Just like you wouldn't blame a handicapped person for needing more attention, I don't think you can blame a depressed person for needing more help or blame the person for being selfish.

Each of us are born in a different way, with different strengths and weakness. Some people can read better, some people can write better, some people can sing better. Similarly, some people worry more and get depressed more.

It is one of the natural traits.

But you are right in a way - if you focus on outer world, and not focus too much on yourself, I think you can overcome your depression to quite an extent!!. But that doesn't mean being depressed is selfish.
