In brief: Unrealistic guilt
Thought processes can become distorted with depression.
A person may view themselves & their actions negatively & unrealistically. They may feel responsible when bad things happen that don't even fall under their purview. They may be quick to blame themselves & even minor transgressions can become a major focus for them.
