I am a 16 year old with a loving family. They give me more than I need and provide me with anything. They give me all their time and the best quality of life.
But why am I depressed?
I have been through a lot, in my opinion. Lots of moving, eating disorder (myself and family member), self harm, heartbreak, sexual harassment, cyber bullying, suicide attempt, health problems, family problems,..
My parents can be strict and very judgmental. Whenever I try to express my sadness, they tell me that I'm spoiled. Whenever I express lack of love or being sad because of a loss of anything, they tell me they made a mistake of raising me as a spoiled child.
They do not know about my self harm, depression, and suicidal thoughts. (please do not report be for mentioning suicide) I am beginning to think that the 4 years of depression and suicide idealization that led to an attempt no one knows about - is all an act of a spoiled brat. I am afraid to tell my parents since they will say that I am spoiled, like they always do - which is probably true.
Please feel free to tell me your opinion.

You seem very unhappy. You need to talk to someone0

You have depression.
You need to see your doctor or your school therapist (but if you do this do not mention suicidal thoughts)
You need to speak to a doctor really but without your parents knowledge. In this country 16 is old enough. But I think you should speak to them and go through everything. Be clear on ages and consent before you reveal anything.
I did nothing at your age. I've seen therapists for the past 10 years and been on anti depressants for 3 years.0
