So I told my mom that I have been really anxious, guilty and sad all the time for a long time and that I don't want to do anything anymore and she started yelling at me and told me that I'm selfish and lying which made me cry because why on Earth would I lie about that? My father died when I was eight and after that I became really sad (I don't know wether or not I do have depression) and each year gets worse and worse, I'm almost 16 and what I feel is like a piece of me is dying everyday and I have to swallow in tears all the time and I barely gathered the courage to tell my mom this and her reaction makes me want to die even more than I already did want to.
Sorry if the topic is wrong I just don't really know where to put this.

Sadly, some parents have no empathy whatsoever. Be prepared to find solace elsewhere.
And some parents wonder why their daughters run off with men at too young an age, or why their daughters won't be honest with them, when they will only pounce on their daughters if they are honest.
Just curious, but why guilty? It is hardly your fault your father died.0

Maybe your mom is bitter and hurting inside. It doesn't excuse her response but it's something to think about. I know you miss your dad but try not to let it get you down, and certainly don't let your mother bring you down with her. Things are dark for now but they do get better, you will be okay. Your life is worth living and you are so much luckier than so many people right now fighting for and losing their lives. There's babies that get taken out of this world before they even have the chance to enter it. You will be okay, enjoy the simple fact your breathing and get to enjoy the wind and the flowers, the trees and the sun. The most beautiful and special thing you could ever be in this world is alive. Please don't give that up.0
