Thank you for your question

you are certainly not a Munafiq. A Munafiq never intends to keep his or make up to a promise. He makes  them only to break them.

as for yourself, you make promises sincerely to keep them and stick by your word. In this case you’re completely opposite of a munafiq. You only need to analyze the following:

1- list down the promised you have broken in the past or words you haven’t been able to act upon yourself and see what was the cause. Find possible solutions and adopt them one at a time. Give the solutions some time and see which one was best to Over come your issue.

2- do not make promises or advice  if you feel you won’t be able to do it. Only give commitments for things that you will certainly be able to perform. This will minimize your disappointment and make you confident.

also, you must see a therapist or a counselor because having suicidal thoughts isn’t healthy. At times it’s just a simple lack of vitamins that makes you feel so low and to Eradicate this, you must also see a medical professional.

InshaAllah  all goes well
