Recovering From Depression?

Has anyone suffered from depression and recovered and is now happy? What helped you with your depression.

I have been depressed to some degree on and offf most of my life. I have coped fine. Life changes and sometimes this has helped with depression. But recently for past 2 years, I cannot seem to get out of it. Is there any secret or answer that helped someone out of depression. Please share.
