In brief: Not dealing with it
Worst way is denying and refusing treatments.
Depression is very common but can be very debilitating without help. Self-medication with drugs and alcohol is another.

In brief: Doing Nothing
The worst thing you could do would be to do nothing.
This would include isolating yourself and rejecting help from others. Also, it would be a bad idea to try to self-medicate through excessive alcohol use or illegal drug use. In addition, it is not healthy to engage in other risky behaviors as a way of trying to make yourself feel better.
