Bearing burdens alone 

What kind of skills did Moses posses that he could lead a minimum of three to three and a half million people out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, and in the wilderness for forty years? 

Yet, early on he learned that he could not do it alone, and so he reminded the Israelites, 

“How can I alone bear your problems and your burdens and your complaints? Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you” (Deuteronomy 1:12-13). 

Notice that he pointed out to them the negative aspects of leading: their problems, their burdens, and their complaints. It does not matter what the group of people is, they will have problems, burdens, and complaints, and if you are the leader of these people, those things will soon get you down. 

Therefore, ask God to help you with people who can assist you in your work. Then see how much better life is.
