Worst Feelings In the World

The Top Ten
1 Depression

A terrible feeling. The lack of motivation and sleep lays a sense of exhaustion on your face and body. I don't want to get out of bed and think "What's the point in living if I'm just going to dread life today, tomorrow, and the next?"

It's like being out at sea, with nothing around you but endless water, and you try to keep your head above water, and for a while it works, but without rest staying afloat gets tiring, and eventually you can't take it anymore, so you go under, but the moment you try and come back up a wave washes over you and pulls you back under. Keeping concious no longer seems like a good option, and all you want to do is stop fighting, but your body won't stop. No matter how hard you try, you're stuck in this endless cycle of misery.

Depression is something that constantly attacks your brain and you can't focus. All you want is to lay down and play dead. You get upset because you always wake up in the morning and yet you are so tired you fall to the floor and you watch yourself lay in a puddle of your tears waiting til your final gasp of air. I just want to rest because my body can't keep on kicking the way it use to.

Easily number one. I can't really think of a
perfect way to describe it, but I'll give it a shot. Imagine you are in a desert, and every time you find a bunch of water, a sandstorm blows all of it away, and when you eventually give up and try to die, it rains, and you keep going. Imagine this always happening for maybe a few months at least, and a few years at most.

2 Fear

Having a severe anxiety disorder that has been haunting me for almost all my life, I know that this is the one thing I want out of my life. It's the one thing holding me back the one thing I can't help. I want this gone and it's the worst. I've had it since I was 5 and I'm 12 and it makes me so sad and scared :(

The basis for all insecurities and also is everyone's biggest bully. The start to hopelessness.

Fear is overwhelming to say the least, and holds hands with paranoia.

Why should I fear by being alone? I'm almost always alone.

3 Loneliness

Loneliness is a horrible feeling. I recently had a breakup during lockdown and being stuck in the house on my own with my own thoughts and feelings of loneliness was a real low point for me.

When you're used to having a partner around you and friends/family and go to nothing it makes life feel empty and almost pointless.

I would go about my normal activities but just struggled to get the usual motivation I had.

I am lucky that I was still able to speak to friends on the phone and virtually, and was working (Although from home).

My experience has taught me that having a social network of friends/family is one of the most important things in life.

One of my biggest fears is being stuck lonely and socially isolated. I wouldn't wish that on anyone and feel like the society we live in (Me included) need to make more of an effort to pull together and really start to bond with each other. We seem to have lost old values of commitment, respect, community and ...more

It never goes away, ever... I'd never wish this on anyone, it hurts so much. It doesn't make sense to me how lonely I am even around people.

Knowing you have friends around you, but at the same time having no one to turn to in times of need. Or maybe you have tried to turn to someone, but they aren't there for you. It like your chest feels hollow and despite needing love and comfort its like your looking into a black hole even you can't help yourself.

Humans are a social species. No matter how extroverted or introverted you are, everyone needs human connections and love. If a person doesn't get those basic needs, don't expect that individual to feel very content or proud of their life.

4 Stress

I had a lot of this in 8th grade.

Makes you age fast.

5 Helplessness

It's the end of the world when you are in any kind of feeling or problems and you don't find someone or something that help you.

You throw everything you got at it or them and there's nothing you can do about it. Pull every trick up your sleeves, in your pocket, sacrifice an arm and a leg and even your heart and soul... and yet your efforts are in vain.

6 Paranoia

I can only describe it as a creeping suspicion. Is something wrong? Did I do something wrong? Paranoia makes you think of what could be wrong, which in turn makes you feel worse.

Def not number 1 worthy, but super horrible nonetheless, especially when the thing you're paranoid about is real and tangible.

It should be higher

7 Heartbreak

It's very rough to loose such a passionate relationship, and arguably even worse too realize that someone doesn't truly love you and is simply using you.

You are very complicated. And no... I don't know anything. But I'm glad you replied and I hope that you didn't regret it because nobody can harm you here. I think that certain people miss you, you should come back in The Top Tens and you shouldn't feel insecurity about the impressions you left. Impressions are not all the truth after all, and I think that we all people are insecure more or less. You don't have to be personal and give any kind of explanation. I think that I kind of understand now. Take your time if that makes you feel less stressed and try to make it easy on yourself. Don't feel threatened please. It's important not to feel this way. Take care and be well. Give it a chance.

I wish I also knew who made this list. It's not who I thought or maybe wanted it to be. I can only guess who made the reply to my comment. I don't have a dark side, just lonesome sometimes, even among those I treasure and keep close to my heart. I'm just terrified of getting my heart broken - it's fragile. This list has gone from newest lists section so I'm guessing that you have bookmarked this list to come back to...
And I hope you find this comment. I'm confused right now, that's all. I need time away to work things out with a loved one. Thank you. I care for you too, always have. But then you already know that, don't you?

I wish I knew for sure who made that list... Maybe it could make the difference. Anyway, I believe that people shouldn't give up expressing their feelings just because they had an argument or a misunderstanding. I can't say that I understand you, but I feel that despite your dark side you have also a very beautiful and gentle side and it's that side that I'm caring for and that's why I added this comment in this list. Take care, I'm not upset anymore. Honestly.

8 Anxiety

Constant static noise in my mind. "Did you forget something? Are you going to fail? I'm not sure about this." It constantly pulls me down.

I agree, anxiety, especially social anxiety can be hard to cope to.

Worse than depression.

9 Guilt

The phrase "Sorry doesn't cut it.", goes both ways. Saying sorry doesn't take away the aching feeling of guilt in your throat. It lingers and makes you feel awful.

That horrible guilty feeling when you feel like something is eating at you throat. Can make me feel sick for days!

I know this feeling. It makes a me feel sick for hours!

Yes, often we do something wrong and we hate ourself.

10 Regret

I think It's the worst feeling, You think and then you feel sad - because you think you shouldn't have done that.

Especially when you would do anything to make things right and cannot due to circumstances.

I wish I could go back. What was I thinking.

The Contenders
11 Unrequited Love

Well it is something I can name it the worst feeling it can put you in anxiety and feeling of being a failure. And the person that's not into the other person have no idea at all, and it is harder when you are a girl and you're into a guy who doesn't give a damn about you :)

It can go either way so long as the feelings are one sided. I've loved her my whole life and this has caused her to hate me and distance herself from me. This probably shouldn't be as high as depression, but it's a horrible feeling you can do nothing about.

This is really one of the worst feelings, knowing someone will not be with you yet you're so obsessed with that person, who will eventually be with someone else, and someone else will get to have your crush in their life, but not you.

This is very ridiculous. this is the thing that can put you through above thing (Depression, Loneliness, Stress, Heartbreak, Emptiness, feeling of being a failure) I'm also a victim of it what I can say is that it is a ridiculous state which make the one in it behave ridiculously

12 Anger
13 Being Hated

It's a pain in the heart. As someone who is a people pleaser, it brings me down so much to hear that someone hates me.

When it's by someone you love and care about, it's got to be the worst feeling.

Trust, me this will make you want to move to another town or planet.

Trust me. Being hated really hurts.

14 Emptiness

The god show me the path of Emptiness, without expresion..1.there's no trouble come near to me 2.I bored about tear or cry when someone bully me..the Emptiness is my friend now

15 Being Ignored

Being ignored by the only person you want to talk to makes you feel lonely, emtpy, and invisible. Makes you feel not good enough. Some say being hated is better cause at least they treat you like you exist.

Heh. Yeah. I walk up to my friend and she just turns her back to me. After a while, she turns around and says "oh hi" in a bored way.

This makes me sad.

It hurts especially the people you thought that cared about you just ignored you

16 Loss

In loss I think grieving. Grieving is tough. Acceptance is tough. Loss groups fear, anxiety, loneliness, anger and sometimes guilt and regret. Far the worse feeling ever.

I lost my mom a couple of months ago and my cousin before that.

17 Embarrassment

My whole life summed up in one word.

18 Inadequacy

It's not that I'm not good enough, but I always feel like I'm not good enough, and that feeling really destroys you.

That's the reason why I don't have many friends. As you can tell, the world isn't the friendliest place

Lost in the crowd.

19 Jealousy

when you're jealous of people who are having the best life while you're suffering, of people who are rich and have the perfect parents and friends while you have to deal with financial issues and unreasonable, aggressive parents, of people who have an amazing love life while you're being ignored by your love interest. The anger and hatred that you feel against those people because of the unfairness, it hurts

Jealousy is the worst feeling ever. It makes you imagine how your life would be if things were different. It makes you think that you're not good enough. You watch everyone leave you behind to go do something that you can't. Its just horrible.

20 Failure

Failing even if I tried my best is terrible pain. I feel as though I'm not good enough for anyone. It starts a downward spiral of self doubt.

Failure can make you question your future. And it can be really scary because when the future is foggy it can lead to thoughts like is it worth it, will I even amount to anything in this capitalist world?
Sometimes you need support or help but you can't afford it or find it. The worst part is when you are trying your hardest yet it still doesn't work.

Reminds you of how worthless you think you are.

Knowing that if you could've done more, things would be different

21 Rejection

This has never actually happened to me until recently. It actually feels a lot worse than I thought it would.

22 Pain

Pain is the worst feeling, whether it be physical, mental or both. It incorporates many feelings that are listed here.

I'm almost immune to any kind of pain including:
-Mental Pain
-Physical Pain (I'm going trough such pain my entire life now ,and I got used to it)
-Moral Pain (because I don't have a moral I can't be morally hurt)
-Psychological Pain (because I'm straight up a devilish monster, especially if I'm angry)

Distracts you from thinking and acting.

23 Shyness

Dream destroyer, is one of the reason I'm lonely (shyness is holding me back from doing everything, which includes making friends), makes me look weak, makes me fail, etc. You may think shyness is the best trait in the world because it's "cute" (yeah, a trait that NEARLY completely destroyed my dreams of becoming famous, how cute! ). To me, my shyness is one of my worst enemies

Shyness is the root of heartbreak. Can't get the girl because I'm too shy so I sit here brokenhearted, wondering how much simpler life would be in first-world culture if I was able to speak my mind with no internal force holding me back every time.

Oh... Shyness can be crippling. Things you so desperatly want to say but can't. People think you're aloof or anti-social when that couldn't be further from the truth. I feel for you, anonymous because I can relate to everything you're trying to say. You are not alone, my friend : )

Same with messing up and sounding stupid because of how shy you are
