If your parents noticed this they may be worried about you but they dont know whats your problem share with your parents and you said you were in a environment where u were criticized a lot this may be one of the reasons for your depressed behaviour this may be depression or may not be coz diagnosis of this must meet some criteria so better consult a psychiatrist

Confide in your parents, they will support you. You also need a counselling from psychologist to help you get out of these thoughts. Dont carry your past in your present and future, leave it behind and be a wonderful person whom GOD created with so much of love.
