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

2 Death of a parent or sibling

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

4 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.

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.

5 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

Why is being humiliated at school higher than this? This can change you forever and scar you! being humiliated isn't twice as bad as rape. People who rape have serious problems and should be arrested for life - wambamkam

6 Being humiliated at school
7 Being involved with drugs

Smoke WEED everyday

8 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. - Merilille

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

Looks wise, this isn't bad compared to your earlobe ripping in your sleep. - PianoQueen

19 Having your family killed in front of you

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

Yea this true

20 Getting friendzoned

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

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

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
