Frustration and despair often arise when people are in very difficult situations as if there is no way out, when problems come one after another, when the burden of life feels heavy. The peak of frustration and despair is feeling bored of life, so there is an intention to end life because you feel that you don’t matter anymore.
This condition was once felt by Job! His constant suffering frustrated him: his possessions were gone, his children died, and even his beloved wife left him. Job’s misfortune was more complete, for his closest friends also moved away. That’s the world! When a person is “above” and abundant in wealth it is natural for many people to swarm him, but once he is “below” and falls into poverty, not many people want to be friends with him or abandoned by his friends, “The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.” Proverb
Having lost everything, Job became so frustrated and his frustration reached the limit, that he felt bored of life. Even Job felt regret for being born into this world: Why then did you bring me out of the womb? I wish I had died before any eye saw me?”Job 10:18
In today’s difficult times, there are many people who feel frustrated and discouraged because of the heavy pressures of life. Not even a few of them had the heart to end their lives just like Job. Never desire to end your life! No matter how hard the suffering we experience, there must be a way out. There is help, there is deliverance. So, there is hope for your future.
