Ah yes, this is familiar.

Proverbs 23:29-30
Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes?
Those who tarry long over wine; those who go to try mixed wine.

Who do we think we are? Job discovers the obvious answer when God shows up and starts asking questions. God is God and we don't have a clue.

Job 38:3-5
Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me.
“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?

This is why having a good marriage is so critical. When one of you is falling apart, the other can provide perspective.

Job 2:9-10
Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”
But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
