Best answer: Why would God and your loved ones call you selfish? Well, I can't speak to their state of mind. I'm sure if you asked them, they would tell you exactly why you shouldn't kill yourself. I see many who are concerned for your well being here on this very cynical website are actually reaching out as Christians. I myself am one, and from a biblical perspective, I'd have to agree with much of what they say.
In God's eyes, and even your family's, you have a great path set ahead of you. God intends good things for your life, but you have to choose to follow in that path. All your life you've been "taking the wheel" and driving. Look where it has led you! It's led you to despair, deep in sin, and separated from God; who according to himself is love, light, and life. Those are precisely what we want in life! So really, if you want to feel joy, seek God out and know how he will judge. Know who he says he is first-hand rather than by listening to what other people have to say about him. Maybe he can change your life for the better. I know he can because he did it with me.
So why then is it selfish to kill yourself? Well because simply God intends for us to do what he says. He tells his followers, the ones going to heaven, to spread the gospel of peace. He wants us to follow him. He wants us to love the poor, the widows, and the orphans. Your family wants these good things for you too, even if not biblical things. By you killing yourself, it's like giving the finger to all those elements and just ending it because it got too hard for you. If it's hard, console in the family that clearly loves you. Ask for their help to take some pressure off of you. Seek God so that you know how to pray to him, and then ask him for his help to strengthen you. What has kept you from doing that?
