“Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, ‘Sit here while I go over there and pray.’ He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.’” -Matthew 26:36-38 (NIV)
Jesus got overwhelmed. He felt like things were too much to handle. And, since Jesus was without sin, we know that feeling that way is not a sin. You don’t have to be ashamed of feeling like you want to give up.
