Sorrowful Mysteries- a study

What was so bad about this part of the Passion? Was it being so utterly alone? The fear of knowing what was about to happen? Betrayal? Leaving His Holy Mother? I did a brief search about sweating blood, which we are told Christ did-

I agree, perhaps it was the reason He cried out a few minutes before He died:  "My God, my God, why hath thou forsaken me?" -- seeing that in spite of His terrible Passion, two thirds of humanity and more will be lost.
