Feeling depressed

Hello, I’m 22 years old and I worry a lot. My life isnt perfect, and I wish it would get better. My childhood wasn’t good as my dad was always fussy about something, and very overprotective as in it continues in my adult life sadly. Sometimes, I would feel depressed and not wanna get out of bed, feeling empty. I feel like I’ve failed myself because of feeling unmotivated, and not being able to stick to something. My mom I can trust her, and tell her everything, but my dad is another story. I just want to be trusted and have my freedom without my dad sheltering me too much. I feel stressed out because I try getting along with my brother, but he plays too much without knowing how to stop, and give me attitude all day everyday. To be clear, I still live with my parents until I get my college degree. Also, I’ve been scared to coming out due to what my family would think of me. I also never had a 1st date, or a relationship longer than 6 months. Also, i feel bored or uninterested doing the same things daily like taking out the trash or etc. I’m lost here, what should I do?

    I have felt the same way in the past.
    To get over that feeling of emptiness maybe try doing an activity that makes you happy, an activity that you haven’t done in a while, or trying something new to occupy your thoughts.
    And don’t worry about your future, it seems as if you are worried about what will happen next and what will come in the near future. Don’t worry, the time will come once it does and you can worry about it then once it happens.
    Maybe venting to a friend or family memeber will help the situation. Maybe even trying to see a counselor may work, it’s never to early or to late.
