My response is in Green:
I am sorry you feel that you can't live anymore. I would ask you a question. What do you think happens when you die? This is a question you better think about before you think about suicide, because once you are dead it is too late to worry about it.
You said you are not sure if you should believe in God or not. Okay, but again you need to answer a few questions for yourself. If there is no God, then where did you and I come from? I am sure you have been taught evolution in school, but you have to decide for yourself if it makes sense or not. Take a look at the computer you use. Where do you think it came from. I will give you two choices. 1. Someone designed it and someone built it. 2. It happened by random chance over the period of a couple of billion years.
Okay, which one did you choose for the correct answer? This might sound silly to you, but think about it. You know that the computer you use did not just make itself over a long period of time. You know that no matter how long a period it is that a computer will never just become a computer. That is common sense. Now look in the mirror. Do you realize that you are more complex and more powerful than all the computers that have ever been built? Now answer this question, knowing that you are more complex by trillions of times than the computer, where did you come from? 1. Someone designed you and built you. 2. You happened by random chance over the period of a couple of billion years.
Okay, which answer did you pick? Do you see my point. We all know that a computer, or a car, or a TV or a CD player did not just make themselves, but we are willing to believe that all the animals and all the people are just an accident of evolution.
My point is that if you just use your common sense you will know that you have a Creator, you just need to get to know Him. I will tell you straight up that He is the answer to your whole misunderstood life. He is the answer to what happens when you die. He created you with a soul and that soul will live forever. Either it will live with Him and have a good time or it will live in hell, separated from Him and have a horrible time.
Here is the reason:
We will all have to answer to God someday for the wrong things we have done. These are called sins and we have all done some of them. God is holy and demands death for anyone who sins. (Ezekiel 18:4 NIV) For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son--both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.
We are all under a death sentence from a Holy God, who can't stand sin and we have all sinned. But God loves us and does not want us to go to hell to be punished for our sins. Because He is Holy He can't just forgive and forget our sins, His Holy nature demands that someone pays for those sins. (John 3:16 NIV) "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Also look at this: (Romans 5:8 NIV) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
If we die without getting right with God we will go to hell for eternity and suffer in punishment for our sins. However, if we will believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for our sins, and if we confess our sins (admit them to God) and ask Him to forgive us He will. And if we believe that after He died God the Father raised Him back to life then we will be saved and if we die we will go to be with God. (Romans 10:9 NIV) That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
That is the most important thing in this life. Suicide is never the way to take care of problems. All suicide will do is lock the problems a person has already onto their back forever. Suicide is final, once you are dead there is no turning back. As long as a person has breath in their lungs there is hope. There is hope that things will get better, there is hope that they will find God and get right with Him. But once the person is dead they will never have any hope, because things will never change.
If you get right with God that does not mean that all your problems will instantly go away, but it does mean that you will have hope and that God will help you deal with those problems you have. Without God there is not hope now or after death.
I hope you will at least try to find out who God is. You said you can't go on living, but you can if you will allow God to help you.
