I realized that when I was like 8 years old.

So Satan can control my mind too? I will be sad if I choose to be sad. If my mind isn't even my own than it isn't even me being sad.
The absolute saddest time in your life. Imagine that feeling remaining indefinitely, with no hope of understanding your way out of it and no numbing of the pain over time. I think that is at least the basic premise of hell.

It's just something that religious leaders (cult leaders) devised as a method of control.
Their version of God is just another version of Big Brother. He sees everything you do, and if you do anything bad he will torture you.
Hell is just a way to try and make people afraid of being bad. None of the people could even read at the time, that is why they had preachers to begin with, they could read these sacred (and prohibitively expensive) bibles aloud to the unwashed, uneducated (illiterate) masses, and so of course they added whatever they wanted to the texts. Today few people agree on what is and isn't the bible. There are many versions, and many more if you consider that what the Jewish and Muslim faiths believe are very similar in many ways.
There are LOTS of different translations of the bible, and lots of different ideas of which books are truly written down by prophets and which are BS, which are collectively labelled as apocrypha these days.
In conclusion, in a time where people were pretty liberal with the swords and the murder, Hell was a way to control people through fear and make them act respectable.
Since then the entire thing has grown wildly out of control, and that leaves us in the present day, with people saying the Earth is the center of the universe and the sole home of life, that it is only 6000 years old, and that dinosaur bones were planted in the ground by God as a test of faith.
They say that life's a carousel spinning fast, you've got to ride it well. The world is full of Kings and Queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams. It's Heaven and Hell, oh well.
