Am I depressed? I am a 13 year old girl


Q: Am I depressed? I am a 13 year old girl and I have been feeling like this for the past month. I now feel sad all the time, and everything feels wrong. I feel like one minor thing sets everything off and I feel horrible. I've always had a problem of loving myself and now it's worse, I absoloute loathe myself and everything mistake I make, I make myself feel like really bad for it. I am not suicidal but I dont see the point in life anymore because it feels like torture. You live, you go through pain and then you die. I have even questioned my faith because I don't understand why I feel like this. Please help me, I just want someone to tell me what to do to feel better. Thanks.
