Top Ten Hardest Things In Life


The Top Ten

1 School

Waking up in the morning, even in winter JUST WANT TO STAY IN BED AND START DREAMING

I personally enjoy school, but that doesn't mean it wont come with a lot of frustration and anger and crying. I guess that's what it takes to be successful. - keycha1n

Frankly speaking I don't know whether this is that hard because I myself am 16 yrs old and in last year of my high-school and I have still so much hard things awaiting. But surely it is difficult like to get up early, write pretty nonsense things in the name of so called notes and byhearting so many things and languages which we are sure to forget soon. And most importantly wasting so much time in byhearting rather than understanding. I am sure we would have many genius people if they stop these unnecessary things and focus on skills instead of so called traditional teaching system. It is a hard part and becomes worse when you realize that you are wasting your time sometimes over nothing.

School is not hard sometimes sometimes its easy or hard

2 Accepting death

I believe that there is heaven on the other side, but so far no one can know, unless you die. I'll just live life to the fullest, because you can't redo your life once it's over. Death is a part of every life cycle, and it's happened for billions of years. It keeps the circle of life going. People will continue to be born after you die. Plus, your family will remember you after death - ethanmeinster

We are all scared because we don't know what it is. It could be good, bad, scary or confusing but we have to except it because we can do nothing to stop it so all we can do is make the most of our life and enjoy our time living. It will always be hard though...

That's the hardest thing for me. I try to stop thinking about it but I can't.

This is much worse than school! It sucks that people can die and they can even die young! Better enjoy ourselves while we have the chance.

3 Growing up

Don't take things for granted, you 13 year olds and younger. During those times, things can truly be "magical". - gimi8609

That means the rest of ones life is bad apart from the day they get married - Harri666

Very true.. Learning from our failures and growing up is vital for the Success in our Life. The more early we grow up in life the better and less painful life will become. - ashakantasharma

Read catcher in the rye and you'll understand better

I hate growing up it's the decay of the mind and adults are a hell worse they lose 50% of their brain cells I could sense of how horrible they are SO DUMB!

4 Taking rejection

Having the feeling of rejection is worse than all the problems in life as the possibilities of accepting this is limited. People not accepting you for who you are, poor grades in school, and many more is painful to endure. The worst part is that because this seems so shocking to us, we aren't able to learn from this and all this depression we feel will be all for nothing. Everyone wishes to have a carefree life but this may be necessary as it can teach us to push ourselves in the end.

My arrogance made me feel like I could win everything, but I didn't know that there were better people than me, and that people aren't perfect. I had trouble whenever I got rejected from ASB or got rejected from a math competition, and I felt like the stupidest person ever. I was in depression for days on end (I was one of the straight-A students). Being rejected by a crush, is worse. It make you feel so angry when your crush likes the jerk (true story). Life gets better though. You can't have it all, but it's hard to accept that. - ethanmeinster

I remember growing up I always felt rejected, like no one wanted to talk to me. Like everyone was going out of their way to avoid me. I'm not sure why, I don't want to be a show-off, but I was really nice to everyone and tried so hard to make them like me. They weren't mean to me, but it was obvious the didn't like me as much as they liked each other. I still feel like that sometimes... - SilviaCat

School is hard. Work is harder. And I'm pretty sure raising kids is hard, too. But there's nothing much painful than taking rejection. You go to school and work to have money, live. It's hard but worth it, you know.

When you get rejected once, it's okay I guess. Worse is when You feel lonely, when you feel that the only one who really loves you are your mom and dad, and even worse than that. Taking it is extremely hard, because what is the meaning of life if you are getting rejected everyday? - MaxPap

5 Raising kids

I totally agree, I have Teenage daughters 16,15 and a 6 year old son who can at times be a little testy. My teenage girls stopped being the sweet cheerful easy to please happy go lucky girls about 4 years ago and kids now days you can raise them to show respect as I did but now they have got older and think they are grown, so when I call there names when they was little girls it was yes mam' now its what and I say excuse me and they say I said what. They challenge my authority all the time and sometimes even try to fight me... I told my friend why does people put themselves through the misery of caring them for 9 months and than labor pains to have kids disrespect you probably hurt you more than anyone in your life ever will and appreciate nothing and have no clue the value of a dollar and how much hard work you have to do to make a dollar... Once AGAIN, I AGREE 100% I TELL MY KIDS ALL THE TIME YOU WILL SEE BEING A PARENT IS BY FAR THE HARDEST THING I EVER HAD TO DO AND HERE'S THE ...more

I am never having kids

This is why I don't wanna get married - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Worst thing gonna happen to me...that's why I'm never gonna marry anyone and have kids...but my parents ugh...

6 Work

Disagree...Work will be the hardest thing in life it is not meant for you and you are doing it. If it is not your passion and you do not love doing it, then it is the hardest thing in life. I love my work and it is my passion and I love doing it for long hours without thinking about time or food. - ashakantasharma

Work is MUCH harder than school believe me. You have to stay for a select amount of time, most likely doing the same thing for lots of hours, sometimes you have to go overtime because of some reason. At least with school there are set times and all that. - NuMetalManiak

Lair school is harder,but losing a loved one is the WORST

7 Being depressed

I'm depressed because all I can think of is death, war and Russia! They're making a super nuke that will 'make the atomic bomb look like a popgun'. It's all I can think of!

I am sort of depressed. I don't want to seek attention, but when the dodgy "cool" girls think you're "weird", life just gets tough. - Lunala

Wait are you talking about having depression, or just being depressed. Either way sucks. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

In my 40yrs I've beat bilateral testicular cancer, divorced from a 13 yr marriage, now losing my home of 15yrs now if that's not depressing. Don't know how much I can take!

8 Losing a loved one

I do not want my family to die and want and pray God to take my life before my family as my life is fully attached with my family members and I can not live without them. May God accept my wish and take my breath before my family. Peace - ashakantasharma

This is actually a very heart paining experience you are alive when everything seem depressing.

This isn't hard


My mum died in 2013 and it had been hard to move on

9 Losing a pet

I have lost my horse named Midnight... I think she is dead by now... Also my two dogs died, Bailey and Angel. What I heard was that someone else shot them or something. And also a cat name Zorro... He died when he got lost. We found him under our porch, dead. ALSO my cat Voodoo... She was the sweetest thing ever... She had seven kittens once. We kept two. Annabelle and Pepper. They are getting old though... But with Annabelle, she was super super scared. Nobody could go near her. She knew that Voodoo lay down with me every day though, and when Voodoo died, Annabelle came up to me. She's just like her mom. And my dog Hidie, I very very old. But she is still with us today, but has a problem with her leg... Once I had a horse named Honey. She had a baby, then the next few weeks we found her dead. Laying in the field. :'-( I had some dogs named Molly, and Ziggy. But they died... One of them died of cancer and the other, old age... I have many more experiences with my other pets that I ...more

Losing a pet is like losing a loved one/friend. Someone you can never replace.

My dad's Maltese, Duke,died when I was eight. It was hard on me and my stepmom, since we were fond of him. He was three or four. I am afraid that my labradoodle will doe too early too.

I would like to say that pets are my life I am from Pakistan and I have 2 parrots 2 chicks and 1 hen.One my all animals died at same date and day.after some time I knew that a cat did it.but I am telling you all that if you will let the chick get out of cage so it will eat and swallow all things that they are on floor and the floor can be cleaned.i cried when I lose them

10 Child birth

I'm sure this is very painful. I feel bad for people put through this. But I've heard that once it happens you get such a feeling of joy that you don't even remember the pain. Is anyone else in a sour mood today? Maybe it's just me. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

I'm glad I'm a guy, that has to be the most painful thing ever, besides getting stabbed, shot, limb ripped off, etc... - RustyNail

Probably the hardest thing to go through at the time of actual childbirth but also the most rewarding I should imagine. - Britgirl

I don't have a crush. I don't even want kids at the moment. - Lunala

The Contenders

11 Controlling your actions

I agree, this one is really hard, cause with all you have to do in this society, you can't do a slight mistake without being shouted over and things like that. You have to be perfect in all of your actions. - MaxPap

I find really it is very difficult for me to not to do bad things even though I know that there will no any result come from it.

To control your actions simply control thoughts. What you think you become. - ashakantasharma

Yup that's very difficult - Ananya

12 Getting dumped

I've only had two boyfriends. One was a mutual parting and we're still friends and the other... - Britgirl

Getting dumped by the First Love is a very Hard Thing in life. - ashakantasharma

It never gets easy. - egnomac

Relationships are stupid. this doesn't count

13 Having to move away

14 Unemployment

That must be so depressing..Always work hard to achieve what you want, If you dedicate your time and energy to your dreams ( The things you want to be), Nothing will stop you, no matter how hard it might get - when you have determination for something to achieve then even time... the hard time will kneel down - Ananya

Upto child days you are safeguarded by someone dearest to you, but after studies you depend on them for money and safeguarding your life is more worst and at the time of unemployment and long unemployment you are forced to this situation. It cannot be explained but in words, but in the day to day life it is the most worst thing and the people who have not realized are more luckiest.

I've never been unemployed but I should imagine it's a depressing time in a person's life. - Britgirl

To those who say school is hard, wait 10 years and see if you're going to say the same about high school.
Being unemployed is a top 5 in my book.

15 Asking your crush out

This is a pretty hard thing to do. I've only been through it once. Strictly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. - Britgirl

I think there's something harder to do: When your asks you out and you're not interested to date. I can't say yes, because I'm not interested to date, but I can't say no either, because I'll break his heart and lose a friend - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

That Is so true

That's hard to do, but it's not the hardest thing in life in my opinion... - MaxPap

16 Taxes
17 Being alone

There is a key difference between being alone and being lonely. Being able to be happy alone is essential but, for many, life seems purposeless when you feel like you don't belong. And sadly that comes with loneliness.

I like being alone. I feel awkward in groups of kids, because 95% think I am "weird" or whatever. - Lunala

That's stupid, I love being alone!

Disagree...Introverts loves being alone...It is the easiest and peaceful thing in life. - ashakantasharma

18 Talking to your crush for the very first time

This should probably be in the list.
Your hearts starts beating faster when you step closer to her/him and you start sweating..
At the last moment you just run away because you feel shy (At least I think that).
It takes nearly more than a hundred times to actually 'start' talking to your crush.

19 Finding love when your true love passes away

Like Forrest Gump and Jenny - istooduptoabully

It is extremely sad.

I think if you lose someone you really loved so much,their is No one in this world who can replace that person.

20 Beating cancer

Definitely very hard also taking care of a loved one who is suffering. By we'll with the effort. University was hard but there are different types of hard through life

Homework is the only thing harder
