help-teen in need of advice

Im 16 and ive been feeling really sad and angry the past couple of months, i recently lost my friends due to a stupid decision and i feel like i have no friends, i almost feel like its my boyfriends fault, ive been with him nearly 2 years and he hated my two best friends and they hated him.
at the moment i have no real friends because i fight alot with my friends, and the things they say to me is horrible, they gang up on me when were trying to make things right and all i do is cry. i have my boyfriend who is my best friend also, but as a 16 year old i feel like i shouldnt have to feel like this, my only friend being my boyfriend. when my mam and dad shout at me, i cry i just cant deal with people being against me.
. i often think of taking the easy way out but never follow through.
im not sure if its depression or just the life of a teenager.

It sounds to me like it's just the normal stress of being a teenager. I went through a very similar situation. I was also 16, had my first boyfriend who my friends hated, my parents weren't too fond of, and he didn't really like any of my friends either. He also complained every time that I would hang out with them instead of him so, stupid me, decided to throw my friends away for this guy. I felt a lot of the things that you are describing. Especially crying and wanting to try to kill myself, I felt like that is all I ever did when I was with him. Ask yourself this... Are you truly happy with this boy? Does he respect you? Does he make you happy? Obviously not if you are thinking these things. You should have other friends besides this boy because being around just him is not healthy. You both need other friends besides each other, especially for emotional health. Obviously no one can make a decision here as to if you stay with this boy or not, but you need to think of your happiness and health first. You're 16 years old, you have the rest of your life to be with someone who makes you happy. You don't sound very happy to me, and that is the most important. How can you care about someone without caring about yourself first? I don't mean for that to sound rude, I am just giving advice from my personal experience. As for my situation when I was  16 years old going through the same things you are explaining, I lost a lot of friends because of that boy and my family HATED being around me because of how I was (personality wise) when I was with him. We did date for about 3 years (off and on) and I can honestly say that he made me the most miserable out of those 3 years and I hated who I was with him.... If you need to talk or vent, or anything, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE feel free to message me on here. I would like to help you since I have personal experience with this kind of situation.
