Top Ten Saddest Things That Can Happen In Life


The Top Ten

1 You Suffer a Painful Death

I don't want to do that!

I don't think that suffering a painful death well be that bad cause you wont be able to feel it at all after. I think it's a good thing cause the suffering stops.

Knowing that this is the end, and that this the last time you'll ever get to see your family or friends again. And as the pain stops, you know that your already gone. - KoolKam

This is the worst thing to ever happen to you

2 The Death of a Parent

This is should definitely be number one. Just thinking about it KILLS me. Not being able to talk to or see your mom or dad again. The person who raised you and brought you onto this earth and you spent your whole life with, is no longer here and will never be here again. All you have is the memories of them. A few minutes after my dad had a seisure, I practically stopped breathing. Me and him have a very deep bond. When he had the seisure, he survived, but just thinking of how much I freaked out, I don't think I would be able to survive. A little while after they diagnosed him with parkinsons diesease. An uncurable sickness. Ever heard of muhammad ali, he died from it. And again not knowing that your loved one isn't there anymore not being able to hold them one last time or see them one... last...time. That, is true torture.

You will never be the same after this - EchoX0

4 You Receive the Death Sentence

Most countries don't have that

That would be scary! - Neonco31

Stupid court... - Nateawesomeness

5 The Death of Your Child

Imagine being a young parent and watching your child that u raised for their whole life die of old age

I am not a mom, but I think that should be in top 3 - artigone

This is by far the worst! If my parents died, I'd be sad but could handle it. If I died, my wife would be devastated but would eventually get over it. Even if I was slowly and painfully killed, it does not compare. The death of a child is absolutely soul destroying and lives with both parents forever even affecting their long-term health. If I lost my son, it would end me.

My son who was 4 years old died from cancer.He died and I was so depresed that even one day I take a rope and put it around my neck,but my friend stop me from doing that.Now 10 years passed and I handle it even sometimes when I see his picture I cry.Sorry because of bad english it isn't my language.

6 You Get Diagnosed With a Disease

This is actually my biggest fear. I eat a lot of unhealthy foods and don't work out much. I have a fast metabolism, so I'm still very skinny, but that hasn't subsided my intense fear of diabetes.

Not every disease is bad

All diseases are bad,and most are painful - Nateawesomeness

7 You Go to Prison

Sure, but what if you deserved it? - Userguy44

It's like being caged,I hate prison - Nateawesomeness

8 You Break Up With Your Loved One


When someone dead we have thought he/she where ever still love us, but breakup is something your love give you pain for life

Ha I agree

Ya right really think about people who lost family members idiots
Tennagers these days are like I’m gonna siucide he betrayed me this is just stupid

9 You Have Suicidal Thoughts

I actually have suicidal thoughts and it is the worst thing ever every single day I cry, I cry myself to sleep, I have panic attacks, and I am a animal lover and animal lover are more emontional which makes it hard for me because a lot of animals died in my life and its horrible to lose someone you love and I go to therapy and my therapist said she would rate me of how bad I am depressed a 10 out of 10 and honestly I don't care anymore and I am only 11!

Ah, my old friend.

I've had them occasionally. I don't like much in life, so that's why.

This means that you find no point in life, which is really sad. Usually, this is caused by one of the other things on this list.

10 The Death of a Pet

When my dog died I cried till my eye lids were bleeding


This is the same as Death of your child You may not be their biological family, but they'll turn into your family

Your pet is your best friend, a member of the family, and when it dies, it's one of the most devastating experiences in life. Your pet is with you for 10-20 years and they become a part of your life. A pet gives you so many happy, good times and knowing that you will never see something you loved and treasured for many years everyone again is depressing.

One of the top saddest experiences for me

I constantly miss and think of my home country.. sure it's poor but I love it. It's painful to be separated from the place you were born, to rarely see your grandparents and uncle. To rarely see your friends. In fact I haven't seen my uncle for more than 2 years, not even on Skype. This is pain that most people don't feel, pain that is unexplainable. To understand you need to feel.
