Top Ten Worst Things That Can Happen to You As a Teenager

The Top Ten Worst Things That Can Happen to You As a Teenager

1 Suicide thoughts

Acne should not be above this, suicide is ending your own life, pretty sure that's worse than a bump on your face. - Garythesnail

Don't worry Mikey, the list is switched around and now Suicide Thoughts is first. - Catacorn

Teens have commit suicide because of school events like bullying and stress going on!

I have wanted to commit suicide because I really hate the quality of school but I stop wanting to commit suicide thanks to friends on TopTens better than crappy people on instagram. - InfernoTopTenners

Actually this is a serious problem no matter what age. - music-is-life

I know that suicide is pretty serious when their is a bully and stuff...but I think it's going a bit too far when girls try to commit suicide over a boy

2 Death of a parent or sibling

Yes, it's kinda cruel for a teenager to go through this when ideally, you'd expect a teenager to be having the best time of their lives; I say this from the experience of losing my mother a few months ago - styLIShT

The family dog passed from a sickness. He was like a little brother to me. I broke down in tears when I heard his last howl. I'm a huge animal lover, so when this happened it felt like a chunk was taken from my heart. every time I think of him, I get all sad. - Pegasister12

Nothing wrong with mourning and loving a pet, and surely it's a deep emotional experience, but the subject here is losing a human family member which usually is incomparable in significance - Billyv

This happened to me, I'm still going through it! It's harsh and it sucks! - ChomperJMan97

Really hurts I lost my dad less than 3 months ago 6 days before thanks giving and I watched him die and I am 12 years old - lbelle0527

3 Getting raped

This is the most horrible thing that can happen to you as a child. It destroys your childhood.

How is this not number 1? This is the most horrifying thing that could happen to ANYONE at ANY AGE!

It would be traumatizing & it would scar you for life. - Luxam

All rapists should be shot - DrayTopTens

4 Bullying

Bullying can really affect a kids life it can give them suicidal thoughts and other terrible thing like that I hate seeing it happen to kids

Yes, bullying is a common but very serious problem a lot of teenagers face. - JoeBoi

Here's advice to all of the bullies out there : Burn in *** you ****suckers and I hope Chucky sticks his knife up your *** - JaysTop10List

I know, being a nerd and a jerk at the same time does have some benefits! - JaysTop10List

God, I get this from one of my so called "best friends" every day, its worse in highschool

5 Becoming pregnant

Yep, this happened to one of my friends, though she moved to a nearby town, she still found a way to tell us. She's 14. We talked about it over text, and I gave her some advice. Her mother will most likely have a fit about it. Hopefully, she won't make her get an abortion. Poor thing, becoming a mother at this age. I think 25 is the best age to have a child. - Pegasister12

Just keep playing Fallout 4. It's the most effective birth control - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Teenage pregnancy would end your happiness as a teen. You'll have so many responsibilities you're not prepared for.

Who's fault is that? The woman still allowed the man to have unprotected sex/ a bad condom. - Puga

6 Being humiliated at school

Only relatable thing here

MOM... thanks for that

7 Depression

I really wish this wasn’t a thing it is so terrible and it can really get me thinking something how can we stop it what causes it and every five seconds another reason is popping up

i have it

Or having PMDD

8 Lose all your friends

I went to high school hoping to make new friends but instead I just ended up losing loads of friends

If you have a good one they wont leave, even if one of you messes up, as long as its not intentional - EliHbk

I lose most of my real life friends because they thought I'm weird - MLPFan

My biggest fear I swear losing all of my friends.

9 Being involved with drugs

Smoke WEED everyday

10 Acne

You guys are going to have a very hard life if you're voting for a couple little bumps on you as the worst thing about being a teenager. - 3DG20

I don't mind about acne very much. I've stopped eating sugar and I also no longer frequently eat fried foods. Some of it is going away but I am continuing to outgrow video games and go outside more then I got more off. Only half of my face has it now but it takes a while before it goes away and you also need to get older before they really go away.

Really? This isn't terrible. I started getting pimples in 5th grade - when I was 10/11. I don't really care anymore, I just accept is as a part of me. There are things 1000 times worse than acne, this really shouldn't be on the list. - Merilille

Just wash your face daily and keep your hygiene good :v - MLPFan

A lot of kids freak out when it starts and it is kind of scary when u think about it and they can sometimes get bullied about it

I thought this would be in top 10.. - djeidi123

25 Change of sex

It can be scary and confusing and some kids start second guessing themselves about it some people get bullied about it to and that really bugs me they are just being themselves dang

26 Your parents punish you for nothing

Oh, right, the GoAnimate videos where parents ground and punish their child for nothing. - JoeBoi

Only as a teen? My dad blames me for everything! - Cyri

This annoying when this happens - trains45

I'm an adult and this still happens to me! >:(

27 Having your family killed in front of you

One of my characters went through this at a younger age. They were traumatized. - Cyri

Whoever thinks that they should just kill ANYONE, especially a poor teenager's family IN FRONT OF HER? This world is just messed up.

Can it get any more depressing than this?

Yea this true

28 Being very tall, yet very weak
29 Have toxic parents/friends

It doesn't seem like the worse the zombie apocalypse can get very romantic and you could possibly survive it

Zombies don't exist - ElSherlock

Just hang out with the doomsday-preppers. You’lol be fine. - Cyri

32 Getting friendzoned

Am I the only one who doesn't see this as bad? I used to be scared of being friendzoned, but later on. I don't see what's wrong with it. You can't forced someone to love you back and you have to accept things in life. because who knows? Maybe after you got friendzoned, you'd get a new crush and your new crush likes you back! - MLPFan

Not that bad. You have to respect someone's opinion and not get mad just because they don't want to date you.

My 2 crushes are good friends of mine, so I will most likely get friendzoned. - Pegasister12

You people really don't know what a blessing being friendzoned is. I have to put up with this BS every day:

"No don't make me work with Jack. Anyone but Jack"
-my crush after I asked her out. - IronSabbathPriest

33 Getting beat up by someone who you thought was weaker than you

It very embarrassing to be beaten by someone you thought was weaker than you especially if he/she does not talk to much and again more embarrassing if a bit gets beaten by a girl🤐

34 Being stalked
35 You Get Your Period

It is really scary and confusing and some girls are even scared of it

This is why I don't feel bad for men when they're experiencing puberty!

Not bad but the worst part about getting your period is that if you have it in the middle of class and the teacher won't let you go the bathroom, not only will it be very unhygienic but blood will get everywhere.

You Stan your pants in public and have no tampon or pad

36 Your crush hates you

Or your crush has a boyfriend. They brake up, next thing you know she gets another boyfriend who's much older. Never having a chance. Burns don't it.

Don't have to worry if you like 2D anime waifus - Mocchiko

46 Being a late bloomer

I was the smallest kid in my grade until I was 17, people made fun of my squeaky voice, looking like a 12 year old, etc.

I'm a normal bloomer. Not late, but not early either - MLPFan

47 Death of a pet

It dose really hurt and it can make a kid very sad especially if they were really attached

This happened before my teen life when I was 11 turning 12 in a month and a half later - trains45
