How can I know if I’m depressed or just lonely?

Every single moment of the day, I always feel empty, like something’s missing. Yes I smile whenever I feel happy but even when I’m smiling and laughing, I always ask myself ‘Is my happiness even true?’ Or ‘Am I genuinely happy?’ Even when I’m with my friends or my family, I still feel this way. Sometimes I doubt my happy moments and think what is my reason to live? What is it that I want? Will this ever end?

I can’t seem to talk this matter out to my close ones, and it is impossible for me to meet a therapist since I’m still underage.

Again, do you think I am lonely, depressed, or just stuck up in the brain?
