When we go through major disappointments in life, our natural reaction is to pull back and isolate ourselves. We want to handle it ourselves. We want to keep our losses and failures and mistakes and crises a secret. We want to withdraw. This is a terrible idea!
When you go through disappointment or crisis or loss is when you need your friends the most. You need to accept help from others. God doesn’t intend for you to handle all the pain and stress in your life by yourself. We were wired for each other. We need each other. We’re social beings. The first thing God said in the Garden of Eden is, “It’s not good for man to be alone.” We’re made to be in relationships.
Job 6:14 says, “When desperate people give up on God Almighty, their friends, at least, should stick with them”.
Trying to handle your trouble yourself will only make you more tired and stressed out. You need to get in a place where you can hear from God and get some HOPE!
