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

The Top Ten
Having suicidal thoughts

I'm still in my teen years and because of the fact that I remember all of the bad stuff that I did and my failure to forgive myself, I already started making plans for my suicide attempt. The fact that I failed to commit suicide by a rope made me think of another way to do it. I would use a rope and handcuffs, the rope would be used for the hanging and the handcuffs would prevent me from saving myself. The only way I thought I could cope with this is self harm, everyday I would use a sharp tool to create scratch marks on my skin, but that made it worse (even though I still engage in this self-injurious behavior.) Even before that behavior I still had thoughts of suicide. But the worst part is that even in previous suicide attempt I did it alone.
I wanted to do it alone so that people wouldn't make me feel selfish, but the guilt, loneliness, anxiety and depression seems unbearable for me. I have extremely
Low self-esteem and a burning hatred for myself. My suicidal thoughts are ...more

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.

Unpleasant thoughts and such considerations aren't unusual, but even if you have lost all hope and desire to live, please remember - as long as you're alive there's a chance things can get better; if you die, there is no chance.
Hang in there.

This is a serious mental condition which affects the minority of the teenage world; however, as it leads in death or serious injury, it is definitely one of the worst on the list. If you need help with suicidal thoughts, call Samaritan’s.

Getting bullied

I got bullied back in my high school and it ruined my educational processe. Made me lose all of my friends and got me thinking about commenting suicide.

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

If anyone is going through this they need to talk to someone immediately

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

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.

Had a pregency scare once, actually it wasn't really a real preguency just me being stupid. Don't ask. Anyway the shear thought of getting preqnant and losing a life I haven't even started and giving it up for a kid, or just having to deal with my family members in general would be awful. This has to be the worst thing

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

That's why always remeber to wear a condom and take some birth controls. Also be careful because some people can poke holes on the condom on porpuse.

Being humiliated at school

some people make lists about who has the best what and it embarrasses the people who didn't wanna be a part of it there are many other things as well

Only relatable thing here

This happens to everyone and honestly it doesn’t really scar you for life

MOM... thanks for that

Losing 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

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

My biggest fear I swear losing all of my friends.

Having depression

Depression and anxiety are two horrible mental problems that every teen faces every once in a while, however if it’s constant it’s very serious and this too can lead to suicidal thoughts and actions

I suffer from depression and anxiety but there's not always a specific cause of it.

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

Being involved with drugs

I'm surprised this is overlooked, lots of teens fall for this in a surprisingly high rate as an easy escape from stress and depression, especially smoking. I've also fell victim for this fatal mistake personally and yes, you're going to be pleasured at first. Especially if you're on a suicidal phase, I suggest you do not take what I done. It is a stupid habit, and once you do take drugs or smoke it's very hard to quit; some people will try quit smoking but most of the time they will return to their formal habits. Nothing will really change except your life will plunge down in the long term. And if you're a woman yourself, and willing to have children, DON'T. There's a high chance you're going to result in stillbirths and other birth defects that you seriously will regret later on, and if that child manages to survive, then you'll end up spending lots of money for disability services as a result. Again, don't take the dumb path and seek a therapist.

Something like this can end your life

drugs can get you made fun of bullied and or killed

Smoke WEED everyday

Getting acne

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.

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.

I had a lot on my forehead, but some cream & cover-up was all that was needed to take care of it.

Getting bad grades

My grades are already suffering. They are crippled and in pain. I only have good grades in 4 classes. Art, P.E, Science, and Integrated English. I suck at math.

Seriously?! I am at advanced class and I got one B only before but on my last progress reports I got two B's. I always got B's in English, but in my last progress reports I still got a B on English and on geography I am so shocked that I never make a B in Mr. Fuller's class(Civics to Geography) but my most highest is in science, second math(so easy thanks to my Aspergers) and third is English so yes I expect only one B or either straight A's I'm ambitious! - Kevinsidis

In my second year of secondary, I was doing terrible in my mathmatics class. I'm not that great at math in general.

I pretty good at most subjects but maths is the only subject I'm not good at

Getting beaten up

How is this only 14th? This hurts!

This hurts so bad

well thiis just hurts

The Contenders
Dating goes wrong

I have a girlfriend who's 2 years older than me so I have to do a HARDER job

I never want to date anyway.

I never had a girlfriend

I never had a boyfriend

Date breaks up with you

My boyfriend dumped me over text

Never want a date.

Parents divorcing

It is very scary and sometimes it feels like it is all it fault even if it is not

This happened to me when I was 5.

Trust me. This is terrifying.

This might happen to me.

Getting suspended from school

If you do some bad things in school

Having an eating disorder

with eating disorders u can either eat too lil or too much, I have this disorder and I eat too much

People make fun of these kids a lot more and I think kids do this even if u are just a little bit different

Going through puberty

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

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 boy lucky as hell because your voice crack you grow your done. But us girls have to have to have blood spill out of us once a month

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

Your parents punishing you for nothing

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

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

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

Being very tall, yet very weak
Being accused of being moody

My parents accuse me of this all of the time

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!

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.

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.

Having random erections

I suffer from this. It's annoying because I always try to push it back but it curls and makes me uncomfortable

The bane of my existence.

I get this like 5 times a day

I have this..

Being taken away from your parent

I was taken from my parents when I was 5 bc my mom is a meth head and my dad is an alcoholic and I live with my moms' mother for 9 now I'm living with my cousins gma I suffer from depression and separation anxiety because of this but there are not always the same symptoms as someone else.

I was in 12 different foster homes... getting taken is the worst thing

Your crush hating 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

Getting beaten up

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🤐

Being shy in school

I used to be shy at school

I’ve always been the shy, introverted kid
