Question:How do i know when im doing whats right for me ?

Im 19 and live with my boyfriend ive known him for 6 years and been with him for 3.I didnt finish my senior year because i was dealing with alot and couldnt take the pressure and to top things my family turned on me because i told them that my aunts husband tried to take advantage of me they believed that i was just rebelling and acting out and to think the people i trusted turned on me was really heart breaking i have always been a good caring person i respected people the way i wanted them to respect me.The only one who was there for me was my boyfriend after all this i moved out and was attending school but my grades got really bad so i droped out. It was tuff mentally financialy and emotionally i tried to pick myself up i got a part time job and was attending night school i started feeling like a failure cause i tried to maintain contact with my fam but every time we spoke they reminded me of how much of a failure i was and that i had become obese i quit my job and school and was like really deppressed i try to better myself im gonna start online school soon to get my diploma and after that i want to attend a culinary school.The only reason y im down now is because i dont feel like myself my boyfriend worries cause im stressed all the time and says i havent been myself in awhile any advice?
