Sometimes most people cry out first to other people for solutions in their problems then if nobody can help them they cry out to God as the last resort.

Don't go back to the world nor to the traditions and religious rituals. Be faithful to God.
Hebrews 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: "Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."
Consider other people give encouragement with them to be a channel of blessings to others. When you allow yourself to be a blessing with someone else you will be more blessed.

Do not harden your heart, when the Holy Spirit talks to you and telling you to repent.
Don't love too much your life, if you love your life you will loose it. Our life and purpose is found in Jesus. That's how we can persevere, suffering are temporary. Heaven is forever. What good is it when you gain the whole world and looses your soul? Soul last forever if we only know how to save it.
Set our mind in heaven then we can be more fruitful. We are going to be rewarded base on our faith with God. Pressed on and persevere; God is preparing us for the next life. (in heaven)
