To be out of options, Stamina to do something in a bad situation,


  • To climb the mountain or a tree you surely need a rope, if there is not enough rope to reach at your destination, you may get in trouble. Just imagine you are at the end of your rope and you can’t get what you were supposed to do in your life. You may run out of power, courage, ideas and resources for how to do more. This idiom also holds another origin and that is when some farm animals are tied to a rope it will become impossible for them to graze beyond their rope limit.   

I lost my job and I have no more money in my account, I’m at the end of my rope.
