Senior and fellow history major here, and I've dealt with my fair share of homesickness and major choice anxiety too. By the content of your post I'm assuming you're a freshman (maybe a sophomore), so I'll respond accordingly, sorry if that's not correct.

I didn't feel ready to come back
I've pretty much felt the same way to varying degrees at the beginning of all eight semesters. It's a totally normal feeling, and the best way to deal with it is to keep yourself busy. Just totally throw yourself back into your school life, both academically and socially, instead of dwelling on things. You'll feel better once you readapt to your school life routines.
i'm in grief having to leave my girlfriend and brother for some time.
Look, of all the people I know who first went off to school with SOs from home, more or less none of them are still together. That's not meant to be discouraging, but the fact of the matter is that long-distance relationships are really fucking hard, and with all the other stresses you have to deal with you might both be making things needlessly difficult for yourselves. Just a thought.
I'm really worried about my major (history major) if it's hard or not and i have absolutely no motivation to do work.
Well it's not exactly engineering or pre-med, but this is college. It's going to be tough (unless you're a business major, ha). Seriously, though, no matter what your major is it's going to be hard work. That's why it's important to pick something you know you really, truly have an interest in.

i've always been good with it and i want to be a teacher, so i thought that was the right path but right now i'm dreading it
Again, assuming that you're still at a relatively early stage in your college career, you don't need to be mapping out your whole life right now. If teaching history is something you think you might want to do, then great, by all means keep pursuing it. But you don't have to wed yourself to it. Explore all your options, find out what you're into. Some might disagree, but I'm of the belief that that's what college is for.
If you find that you do really want to teach, then history is a fine major for that. If not, you have time to change. People switch their majors all the time, it's not that big a deal, especially in the humanities.

The whole "First World Problems" thing is stupid. The mere existence of people with worse problems doesn't invalidate the OP's. There's always someone who has it worse. I'm sure that there are literally billions of people out there who are much worse off than both of you. That doesn't make your own problems any less legitimate either.
Not to mention that the meme basically denies that people in developing and third world countries are also three-dimensional human beings who have their own little emotional issues and get annoyed by day-to-day inconveniences like anyone else.
