When Allah tests you with hardship, it's a calling from him. How else will you get over a struggle if you don't ask the almighty for help? Allah doesn't want you to be among the disbelievers so by testing you, it will make you come back to Him and pray to Him to ease your struggle. So praying because of a specific hardship you're facing is not being ...

It sounds strange that you joined a congregation at the third raka'a of witr. Note that it is only permissible to pray it in congregation during Ramadan, as for other months there's no backup in the sunnah that the prophet () or his companions () ever offered witr in a congregation.
