Cross to Bear: Origin and Meaning

Meaning
A problem or issue that you have to deal with alone, often causing you worry or stress.
Origin
cross to bear When Jesus Christ was sentenced to death, he was forced to carry the cross that he was crucified on alone. It is thought that this is where the phrase originated from, although it is now often used to mean a psychological rather than a physical burden.
Examples

“I wish Helen hadn’t told me her big secret last week. It’s a horrible cross to bear.”

Josh: “My father is still very sick. I go to his house and look after him every evening.”
