This is a normal feeling.  Most particularly young people making the hard transition from childhood to adulthood.  Give yourself another 18 years and be patient with yourself.  I am old enough to be your grandfather, and I still don't know my right hand from my left ;-)
But do you know your right hand from your left foot?

Well, I'm not an alcoholic or a drug addict, at least. I'm addicted to youtube.

I don't know. I am so confused... I mean, everyone who believe in god has some sort of strength to survive hard times in life while I feel so desperate.
And that strength comes from within themselves; they just ascribe it to whichever god they believe in.

If there were any truth to the notion that inner strength actually comes from an external source, there would be no atheists -- we'd be immediately reduced to uselessness at the first adversity.  Since that obviously doesn't happen, then the strength you refer to comes from within.  Or at the very least doesn't need to be outsourced.

I survived hard times when I was a practicing Roman Catholic, I survived hard times when I was a practicing Neopagan, and have I survived hard times as an atheist.  I find it easier as an atheist, actually -- because now I know I need to take proactive steps to actually deal with things, not clap my hands together and ask an invisible sky daddy (or mommy) to make the problem go away.

And welcome!

I'm an atheist. However, church-going folks would like to call me a Satanist on account of my views on God (that there is no "He"). I believe in a higher power. I just won't call it God.

Imagine my surprise.  Rolls Eyes...

Yes that's from the start.  But worth noting.

Which is a demi-god (per Roman politics).

OK, just to be light-hearted (and yes I'm bored)...  I checked my books and couldn't find a Roman or any other demi-god named "Which".  Is it perhaps the origin of "witch" you meant? The OED states that the noun is "apparently" deverbal (derived from wiccian)".  There is also a Proto-Indo European (PIE) *weik- "to separate, to divide".

Hello. You sound more like a deist than an atheist. Anyway, welcome.

My parents always seemed to be generally deistic.  They seemed to think there was a vague creator but it wasn't involved in human life.  No prayers or miracles or whatnot.  I just took the logic a step further.

"which" as in "which desert would you like".  You over analyzed this time.
