Top Ten Worst Things That Could Happen In Life

The Top TenXW

1Being Buried Alive

Why is going to Hell first? That can't happen to you IN life, it could only happen to you AFTER life.

You're buried below ground in a coffin, no one is there, you will be starving and being dehydrated for the rest of your life, and If you had to go to the washroom REAL bad, unfortunately you can't go at all. This is why It is on the Top Ten List.

That's definitely the worst. It must hurt like hell.

Imagine that your sleeping but your not breathing but through the nose. And your parents thought you were dead so they bury you. THe next day you woke up and you are buried alive!

2Going to Hell

Yes is definitely the first, I hear about it burns fire, mad people running and abusing each other.. Really horrible and you see horrible things, and Satan next to you, the worst the pain and the suffering will be eternal!

There is suffering in life. Lots of suffering. But life is temporary. If you go to heaven your suffering is over forever. In hell, the suffering is permanent and much worse than suffering in life. In hell you can see the wicked, people burning, the devil, and demons. Hell is the worst place to go. Just believe in god, say prayers, be good, and fight against evil because it pains me when a human goes to this terrible place

I think you should capitalize God it is a sign of respect but I agree with you

Hell is the worst place to go ever.

This would be AFTER life...not in life.

3Losing a Parent

Losing a parent is like losing a part of you. Who could live without your parent?

Real things are worse than imaginary things like hell

Loosing parent is like loosing our grip while climbing a mountain. we don't get another chance to hold on

Never wish that's happen

4Lose a Child

I lost my 2 kids ages 3 and 5 and my wife of 8 years in a car accident when I was 29. That was 5 years ago now. I think the hardest part of my life now is.. When you have kids you feel a true meaning to your life accomplishments and a new kind of pride. I remember what that felt like. For the first 2 to 3 years I had this feeling of that I didn't know what to do with my self and where to go with my life I guess like will smith in the movie Seven Pounds but I didn't want to die like him in the movie. how I take it is. I'm just like an old person that lives to long and out lives there family but this all happen to me when I was in my late 20's so I guess its not the same. It sucks but has to happen to someone in life... there you go that's better. I feel bad for my parents most of all. Its hardest on them I think. The thought of there kid wakening up everyday to such a different life day after day.

Sorry to hear that. Don't worry your family is watching you from above being proud that you love them

I don't have any yet, I'm 21, but I think it's far worse than that imaginary and deluded "Hell" people are so afraid of. I guess I have a strong pre-developed paternal feeling.

Nothing in life to find your 18 year old child hanging from a rope in your garage from suicide. I love my parents but they know they have had a life. People that put their parents first have never I repeat never experienced the love of a child. Contractions as a new bearing mother and contractions as a mother in lose when your child has died.12 years on and I am still so sad. Some people have no experience in life and hopefully they don't have to experience what I have and am still going through it.

This is far worse than the first 3.No I haven't been buried alive, and no I haven't been to hell..But id have given my life for my daughter, and if I had to be buried alive to do it. And I'd spend the rest of

5Listen to Justin Bieber

Baby baby baby ooh SO ANNOYING

When I hear Justin Bieber I think I wish I was dead, so if dying is number two then listening to Justin Bieber should be number one

I know right! I'm like, sounds so annoying. Wish someone will turn that thing off...

I would go instant suicide. - IAmNotARobot

6Going to Jail for Life

If you were in jail for life, that would be sad and you should come home to see your house and family again.

That has to be a hard feeling after hearing you will be in jail for life being under control all the time with no freedom. - Sabbath

You can't go to jail for life. You can go to prison for life though

There is this guy who murdered his wife and he got 10,000 years in prison for doing so.

This doesn't make sense, we're talking about LIFE!

I had to go to therapy after watching 1000 Ways to Die. I'm not kidding, death scarred me. Murder, Cancer, Aids, Suicide, Heart Attack, and that's to name a few. And listen to this, you don't know when, or where, or how it's gonna happen. It's terrifying. But the thing that makes me think again, prove me wrong atheists, but I imagine walking side by side by Jesus Christ. My savior. That helped me a lot thinking about that. - TheShawshankRedemptionfan321

This is not what people like.

Come on guys, ya just gotta realize it's gonna happen! So live life to the fullest! Because trust me I'm terrified too, I just gotta remember life after death! So just accept it even though it's hard. Just live life now.

8Getting Raped

Especially for girls... And maybe men sometimes... :( - 09ShamsulBahriel

Its torture. Little girls, or anyone, should not be abused for sex. They don't get a say, and it puts them at risk for pregnancy, or a disease like AIDS, even for young girls. Plus, it would be you to explain it to your parents. - ethanmeinster

This would be horrible. Just thinking about it makes me feel unpleasant.

Guys can get raped too but worse in the ass but it's problem

9Seeing the Love of Your Life With Another

I often see my love at first sight trying to get with easy hoes. It kills me because I know that he'd rather have those kind of girls.

Pretty hard to take - gut- wrenching, soul-destroying, mind-numbing pain of the worst kind. But he'll get used to it! - Britgirl

That would be terrible and especially if you changed everything about you just to be with them. Also they rather be with another and you just feel sad because you changed just to be with them and they throw it back at your face.

That's happened to me before, he used to like this girl that I hang out with, but now he is dating someone else and it's all over Instagram and all the people are talking about it, I just can't escape.

10Dying Alone

It's better to die alone than dying among the people who make you feel alone. - GREYBOYY

I always believe that the modern human has something to value. Dying alone is like saying you weren't worth affecting no-one... That is just terrifying. I know it's not technically 'in life', but it starts in life and simply... Carries over I guess. (by the way: Modern as in 1980's onwards, just to clarify).

I'am so scarred of dying alone! No one should ever die alone.

Not really scared of this one cause I already know I am. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

11Getting Cancer

I have Cancer. It really does ruin your life...

You will one day beat cancer if you take the right medications right away. If you procrastinate, the effects are worse. If it is unbeatable, I feel sorry for you. I fear such thing as well. - SelfDestruct

I can only hope they find a cure for it.

I agree... getting cancer is terrible... but love and taste the life until your last breath... cancer is not an end to a precious life... cancer is nothing before a satisfied life... there are many things in our life which is worst than cancer... jealous... rage... etc.. many are suffering from these kind o f diseases... mainly WITHOUT ANY SELF MEDICATION... only self medication could be provided for that kind of diseases... cancer is nothing before your love towards your life... enjoy the life without worrying about your cancer...

Getting cancer is sad it screws up your life

12Be a Virgin Forever

I think that's what happened to Richard Branson... - Britgirl

I'm not afraid of that. I always tell myself "what does it mean to be married? What does it mean to give your life to someone both physically and mentally? " now this isn't for everyone, but I just ask myself wouldn't it be boring after a while, while I'm still married?

Who cares about sex? It's overrated. Besides, I am not interested in love or having children. I would rather go mountain climbing or explore the Grand Canyon. - LostDream258

Eh, not scary at all. I will forever be a virgin anyways. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

13Nobody Likes You

Secondary school sucked. Lots of memories I do not care for. Meeting someone from that secondary school - not nice. Try someone answering their phone pretending their daughter was calling when their phone was black and their speech was all over the place. Another. My niece told a friend of my neighbour I was strange and no one in the family liked me. THINK I QUALIFY FOR NUMBER 21

Ugh, I hate that feeling. I was at my friend's B-day party and three of my BFF's (Including the B-day girl) were all hanging out and ignoring me, I was worse than a 3rd wheel I was a 4th wheel. I tried talking to others at the party but my BEST FRIENDS were the ones who I can really connect to. I had fun but I felt like they didn't like me. It's happened to me on many other occasions too.

I was bullied at primary school but no one cares about me in secondary school.

I have no friends. Unless my sister counts.

My whole elementary year was like this. I literally had no friends except my parents and my pets. Not even my older sister liked me! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

14Your Pet Dies

My tip is give your pet a great life so when it does you will be proud of yourself for giving a animal a happy life - Sabbath

My cat is my life. We both grew up together and I love her as part of the family. I can't even think about her being gone because it brings tears to my eyes. If only cats lived as long as people :(

My sisters chicken died on my friends birthday. She hates that friend. Also my turtle died and they buried her under concrete when they were doing construction.

I can't live to see the day June dies 😭😭😭😭 - AnonymousChick

The best thing to do is: when your dog/cat is getting older and about to pass, get a puppy or kitten. - Survivor101

15Painful Death

I was once in a rush and took some food with me that got stuck in my throat. My body was almost paralyzed and I couldn't breathe properly. I couldn't cough it up or swallow it down. If it wasn't for another person in my house calling for an ambulance, I'd probably died that day because of brain damage due to lack of oxygen. Extremely painful.

I once had a fever of 105 degrees Fahrenheit and stuff stuck in my lungs. It was a thing called croop, luckily it wasn't pneumonia but it was hard to move and every time I sat up it felt like my pillow was on fire! I had to sleep with tons of ice packs all over me. It stunk. I was really little when this happened so I thought I would die. The scariest part is, with such a high fever I actually could've.

This is number 1, it's so scary thinking of everything... Like fires, murders, shark attacks, crocodile attacks, swarms, drowning, shot, stabbed, poisoned, diagnosed with a disease, falling to death, freeze to death, being buried alive, exploded by a bomb, and a tons of more

I couldn't I imagine a more painful death that having you limbs and private parts cut off and dying because of blood loss and/or gangrene and infections - SirSkeletorThe3rd

16Sleeping With Justin Bieber

*refuses to think about this*

My girlfriend would be so pissed that I cheated on her with the worst singer of all time. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The next morning, I'll wake up in hell!

Isn't sleeping with Nicki Minaj even worse? - velitelcabal

17Going Blind

You can't see anything anymore. Your wife friends and everyone you ever saw. You need someone to help you go everywhere

I actually am blind with an assistant reading all of this for me the keys have braille but I can type really fast

I would be so terrified. - HeavyDonkeyKong

I couldn't imagine living life without being able to see, I thought I was going blind once and I had the WORST panic attack in my life...

18Get Bullied

This is very bad search up Amanda Todd in the YouTube search bar and you'll see how serious this is. I was bullied from 2011-2013. And had to move schools because of it and now I have another bully and I have to move again. Out of state. She called me fat, stupid, dimwit, gg (goody goody), etc. like I said now I have to move again because this kid was older than me and could really hurt me. Thanks a lot my secret bully. (In sarcastic voice) yay can't wait to move.

Really. Justin Bieber is worst then bullying? People are really taking the JB jokes way too far. JB should be at the bottom of the list and this should be number 5.

I was bullied by a boy who was the same age as me at Primary School, from year 2, to year 3, year 4, year 5 and finally year 6... And the stupid horrible Primary School headteacher and teachers did nothing about it!

The worst thing ever

19Being Forever Alone

I was always alone. I have schizophrenia and one of the things I do is isolate myself, I was without friends and family didn't care much. It was like hell and was tormented with pain. I think the worst thing is t be always without someone to share life with.

This is already a slot, but it's rephrased.

I guess I understand this once very well.

20Being Executed

Now that's just depressing.

I would hate that.. just knowing you're gonna die in a few seconds:in the waiting room someone calling people one by one. a few seconds after they go the crowd go crazy then the next person.
Then he says its you next to the guillotine.
That (of course) is not how people are executed these days but that is a huge fear of mine.

This would especially be bad if you were executed for something you didn't do.

You do not wanna Ride the Lightning.
