In the past I did acts of shirk and kufr.Then this year I decided to learn more about islam and aqidah. I found out that some of my actions lead to kufr and shirk. I am so angry at myself and despaired. I made tauba but I am so scared that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala does not forgive me. I have this feeling that I never would be forgiven. is this only waswasah or am I a hopeless case?

Do not despair. Have hope and trust that Allah has forgiven you. You must discard and ignore any doubts.

Remember, Allah forgives in abundance and very Merciful.

اِنَّمَا التَّوۡبَةُ عَلَى اللّٰهِ لِلَّذِيۡنَ يَعۡمَلُوۡنَ السُّوۡٓءَ بِجَهَالَةٍ ثُمَّ يَتُوۡبُوۡنَ مِنۡ قَرِيۡبٍ فَاُولٰٓـئِكَ يَتُوۡبُ اللّٰهُ عَلَيۡهِمۡ​ؕ وَكَانَ اللّٰهُ عَلِيۡمًا حَكِيۡمًا‏

"(And remember that) Allah's acceptance of repentance is only for those who commit evil out of ignorance and then soon repent. It is towards such persons that Allah turns graciously. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise." (Sura Nisa 4:17)

وَلَا تَيْأَسُوا مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُ لَا يَيْأَسُ مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ إِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

"Truly no one despairs of Allah's Soothing Mercy except those who have no faith. (Surah Yusuf 12:87)

وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ ۚ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا

....."And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent." (Surah Talaq 65:3)

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ

"Surely, Allah loves those who place their trust in Him." (Surah Aal Imran 3:159)

And Allah knows best
