An Irritating Quote

One of the most irritating quotes that I see is this one:
"God will not give you more than you can handle."
If we accept the premise that it is God that gives us things to handle, and I'm not saying it is, but for this purpose I'll just accept it for now, then of course He gives us too much to handle. The poor souls who can take no more and commit suicide, or turn to alcohol and illegal drugs, to find some relief from their suffering. Those who have nervous breakdowns, and suffer debilitating depression. It's obvious that these people found it way too much to handle.
Some will say that these people are weak. So what? I don't agree with this premise, but even if the people were weak, it just means they could not handle what they were given, so thereby making my point again.
And there but for the Grace of God go any of us.
