I really hate my life. I’m 19 and I think I have depression and I really hate college. Should I quit at the end of my course? (Which is this year)

I think I hate it because I have no friends and I always feel lonely, worthless and a huge failure.

What are my other options? That’s what I am worried about. Like what else can I do if I don’t go to college next year?

Or should I just give up completely? I don’t know

apprenticeships or work. eduction isn't for everyone, people genuinely learn and improve in different ways, you may be better off on a different path. people can work themselves up to a good career too. do you have a specific career you want to go into or are you generally unsure? you could look at a level/btec graduate jobs or just enter a random job that you get paid for amd wait for things to get better or you have an idea. my aunt worked at Greg's in her 20s and ended up the area manager after working there for so long you could do a similar thing. Or just work somewhere menial and find happiness in other ways your career isn't your only meaning to life.
