I'm 22, but still living with my Mum (supportive and loving) and Dad (difficult/overbearing). I'm from the UK. In the past few years, I've suffered a few hardships: been depressed and sucidial to the extent that I nearly killed myself (1 year ago). Now I'm in recovery and getting better , but still unhappy. Fortunately, I'm good with money so I saved £40,000 of my own money, but I just can't seem to enjoy anything, life is hard and all I really wanted to do was find a job I loved and a good life. Whatever I do though I just can't seem to enjoy..., reckon I should go somewhere different and start afresh?
Where do I go from here?

Starting fresh can be great with a good mind set, but as the saying goes your issues and troubles will follow you if you're not prepared to deal with them.
Living on your own in itself can be very rewarding and confidence building. It could make you feel better. Just make sure you do not isolate yourself from your loved ones because depression has the tendency to make us do that, and you could find yourself in a worse state. New hobbies and activities can help, but try not to overwhelm yourself too much at first. It should be a journey that doesn't happen overnight. Serious depression (I'm probably preaching to the choir here so I'm sorry) also isn't something you can just "snap out of". Have you tried any therapy or medications that could help? Sometimes these things aren't due to circumstance but a chemical imbalance in our brains.0
