  9. Knowing that i feel bad even when i have a "good" life is one of the things that makes me hate myself the most.

    Depression can affect anyone, no matter what good or bad things they have in life. People don't actively choose to be depressed. Yes, you have some good things in life, even if they don't make the depression go away. You seem to understand that you are fortunate and that means you are probably grateful on some level. Hating yourself for being fortunate but still depressed is kind of harsh, imo. However, it might even be a product of being depressed.

    Perhaps accept that you are lucky in some ways, and then work toward getting through the depression to a place where you can appreciate things again.
