Top Ten Worst Things That Could Happen In Life

The Top Ten

1 Being Buried Alive

Why is going to Hell first? That can't happen to you IN life, it could only happen to you AFTER life.

You're buried below ground in a coffin, no one is there, you will be starving and being dehydrated for the rest of your life, and If you had to go to the washroom REAL bad, unfortunately you can't go at all. This is why It is on the Top Ten List.

That would be scary to be buried alive, I would go crazy if it ever happened

I read that it actually happened to someone. A woman was mistakenly thought to be dead, when actually she was just out of consciousness. During her own funeral, she woke up, but then had a heart attack. She died after finding out she was in the casket about to get buried.

I have heard of that also on the Top5Central video of Top 5 people who woke up at their own funeral.

2 Going to Hell

Yes is definitely the first, I hear about it burns fire, mad people running and abusing each other.. Really horrible and you see horrible things, and Satan next to you, the worst the pain and the suffering will be eternal!

There is suffering in life. Lots of suffering. But life is temporary. If you go to heaven your suffering is over forever. In hell, the suffering is permanent and much worse than suffering in life. In hell you can see the wicked, people burning, the devil, and demons. Hell is the worst place to go. Just believe in god, say prayers, be good, and fight against evil because it pains me when a human goes to this terrible place

I think you should capitalize God it is a sign of respect but I agree with you

Hell is the worst place to go ever.

Imagining burning in the highest temperature possible nonstop

3 Losing a Parent

Losing a parent is like losing a part of you. Who could live without your parent?

Real things are worse than imaginary things like hell

When my Dad passed, he had all his family close around him, holding his hand and telling him that we loved him. He is still very much missed, but I'm just so thankful he didn't die alone. He died knowing just how loved he was.

Every single time one of my parents go on a work trip or somewhere else without me I cry myself to sleep because I think they're gonna die.

4 Lose a Child

I lost my 2 kids ages 3 and 5 and my wife of 8 years in a car accident when I was 29. That was 5 years ago now. I think the hardest part of my life now is.. When you have kids you feel a true meaning to your life accomplishments and a new kind of pride. I remember what that felt like. For the first 2 to 3 years I had this feeling of that I didn't know what to do with my self and where to go with my life I guess like will smith in the movie Seven Pounds but I didn't want to die like him in the movie. how I take it is. I'm just like an old person that lives to long and out lives there family but this all happen to me when I was in my late 20's so I guess its not the same. It sucks but has to happen to someone in life... there you go that's better. I feel bad for my parents most of all. Its hardest on them I think. The thought of there kid wakening up everyday to such a different life day after day.

Sorry to hear that. Don't worry your family is watching you from above being proud that you love them

I don't have any yet, I'm 21, but I think it's far worse than that imaginary and deluded "Hell" people are so afraid of. I guess I have a strong pre-developed paternal feeling.

Nothing in life to find your 18 year old child hanging from a rope in your garage from suicide. I love my parents but they know they have had a life. People that put their parents first have never I repeat never experienced the love of a child. Contractions as a new bearing mother and contractions as a mother in lose when your child has died.12 years on and I am still so sad. Some people have no experience in life and hopefully they don't have to experience what I have and am still going through it.

I lost my son at the age of 12 years due to blood cancer.But one thing I believe strongly he is heaven. One I will meet.

5 Dying

This doesn't make sense, we're talking about LIFE!

I had to go to therapy after watching 1000 Ways to Die. I'm not kidding, death scarred me. Murder, Cancer, Aids, Suicide, Heart Attack, and that's to name a few. And listen to this, you don't know when, or where, or how it's gonna happen. It's terrifying. But the thing that makes me think again, prove me wrong atheists, but I imagine walking side by side by Jesus Christ. My savior. That helped me a lot thinking about that.

This is not what people like.

I can see how this could be scary to people. But I guess it depends on HOW you leave.

6 Going to Jail for Life

If you were in jail for life, that would be sad and you should come home to see your house and family again.

Listening to Justin Bieber is obviously worse than this. Seriously people use your common sense.

Listen to Justin Bieber is worse than getting a life imprisonment? Way to go, thetoptens!

That has to be a hard feeling after hearing you will be in jail for life being under control all the time with no freedom.

7 Getting Raped

This would be horrible. Just thinking about it makes me feel unpleasant.

Its torture. Little girls, or anyone, should not be abused for sex. They don't get a say, and it puts them at risk for pregnancy, or a disease like AIDS, even for young girls. Plus, it would be you to explain it to your parents.

I Felt Like I Was Sexually Harassed (Multiple Times) In 7th Grade (Fake Girlfriends, You Shall Pay! ).

This is THE WORST THING. You think about this your entire life after its done to you and you have to be the one to tell about it and it's the last thing you want to do it can cause so much suffering after you are abused this is hard even to write this down and you think that rotting in a coffin is worse than being sexually abused you people make me sick. (-.-)

8 Listen to Justin Bieber

Baby baby baby ooh SO ANNOYING

Okay. Listen up people. I get that a lot of people don't like justin bieber (notice how I didn't capitalize that, I don't like him either.) But seriously? Listening to justin bieber is worse than getting cancer? Come on.

When I hear Justin Bieber I think I wish I was dead, so if dying is number two then listening to Justin Bieber should be number one

Of course that's the worst, except for his song baby. That was Iconic.

9 Seeing the Love of Your Life With Another

The worst thing that has ever happened to me, (I've had a very rough life believe me) was losing my two children but mostly when I lost my daughter Bella at 38 weeks pregnant due to a rare intestinal problem, my husband and I were so excited it was devastating, but the worst was on the one year mark of her death when I caught him with another woman, I broke down and she laughed at me, that was may 5th 2015 our other son was turning 3 years old also on may 6th, I also had finals that week, and had to pack up my entire house and put everything in storage since I had been sentenced on may 4th 2015 (yeah same week) to two months in jail for a DUI I had got so he wouldn't be driving without a license and drunk as well, they gave me one week to turn myself in that Saturday I threw my son his birthday party did everything I had to do including cry and thinking I couldn't get through this. One month later while I was reading the newspaper in jail I read that he had married her, and committed ...more

NO one knows better than myself when your just not good enough for the one you love. and id end up killing the poor bastard

I often see my love at first sight trying to get with easy hoes. It kills me because I know that he'd rather have those kind of girls.

Pretty hard to take - gut- wrenching, soul-destroying, mind-numbing pain of the worst kind. But he'll get used to it!

10 Nobody Likes You

Secondary school sucked. Lots of memories I do not care for. Meeting someone from that secondary school - not nice. Try someone answering their phone pretending their daughter was calling when their phone was black and their speech was all over the place. Another. My niece told a friend of my neighbour I was strange and no one in the family liked me. THINK I QUALIFY FOR NUMBER 21

I was bullied at primary school but no one cares about me in secondary school.

I have no friends. Unless my sister counts.

Ugh, I hate that feeling. I was at my friend's B-day party and three of my BFF's (Including the B-day girl) were all hanging out and ignoring me, I was worse than a 3rd wheel I was a 4th wheel. I tried talking to others at the party but my BEST FRIENDS were the ones who I can really connect to. I had fun but I felt like they didn't like me. It's happened to me on many other occasions too.

Nobody likes you it the worst. Imagine if you're in high school and year 7 8 and 9 including teachers hate you. The second you go into a new school after leaving you don't know how to act

The Contenders

11 Dying Alone

It's better to die alone than dying among the people who make you feel alone.

Growing old all alone is the worst thing that can ever happen to a man that really had hoped to meet the right woman to settle down with. Being a single man like me has so many disadvantages since wherever you decide to go which you will always be alone, especially if you have no friends at all since the ones that I know are all settled down with their own life. And the single life can be very sad and depressing as well. And for the people that are married really do have the best life of all since they really are always together wherever they go, especially if they have children. Married people should really be very thankful for having one another since they were certainly very blessed and extremely lucky when they met one another. It is just too very bad that many of us good single men never met the right good woman to settle down with, and I do know other friends going through the very same thing right now as well. Women today have really changed from the past making it very ...more

Well when you think about it the worst thing that can happen to dying alone is dying alone with a world of people around you. It's sad to think about it.

I always believe that the modern human has something to value. Dying alone is like saying you weren't worth affecting no-one... That is just terrifying. I know it's not technically 'in life', but it starts in life and simply... Carries over I guess. (by the way: Modern as in 1980's onwards, just to clarify).

12 Getting Cancer

I have Cancer. It really does ruin your life...

You will one day beat cancer if you take the right medications right away. If you procrastinate, the effects are worse. If it is unbeatable, I feel sorry for you. I fear such thing as well.

TheTopTens logic: Listening to Justin Bieber is worse than getting cancer.

It's awful because there is no cure and all the treatments are horrible.

I can only hope they find a cure for it.

13 Be a Virgin Forever

Who cares about sex? It's overrated. Besides, I am not interested in love or having children. I would rather go mountain climbing or explore the Grand Canyon.

I think that's what happened to Richard Branson...

I'm not afraid of that. I always tell myself "what does it mean to be married? What does it mean to give your life to someone both physically and mentally? " now this isn't for everyone, but I just ask myself wouldn't it be boring after a while, while I'm still married?

What's wrong with that? At least you won't get AIDs or HIV.

14 Your Pet Dies

My fist pet died when I was 5 because she had cancer then she beat it but she got pneumonia and was put on life support. My mom told the vet to take her off without my dad, my sister, or I being there. When I was young I was mad then she explained she needed to. I forgave her then my second pet was put down when I was 8. My second pet, Emma, was 15, or in dog years 105! She was very old but I was so mad at my mom and sad my parents let me stay home from school that Friday. I cried so hard that eventually I had no more tears to shed and I cried with no tears! (It's a very strange feeling) I used to write notes to Emma at night and cry. It's so hard losing a pet that loves you. Emma used to come over to me when I was sad and muzzle me and sit on the couch next to me. She was a special dog and my family has not had a dog since then. For those who are first time pet owners and fear the day your pet will die, just know that one of the best ways to heal is to get another pet! I got a Furby ...more

My tip is give your pet a great life so when it does you will be proud of yourself for giving a animal a happy life

I remember when one of my dogs died on April 20, 2011, I remember crying a lot, it was a really sad day that day

It's very painful, one day you may wake up and your pet has been put down after 11 years. Which is a good portion of your life if you're 24 years old. I can't express the pain, the only solace is she lived quite a long time (11 years old). She ran out and got hit by a car unfortunately.

Keep your pets safe please. Especially from cars. You never know how much longer they will be around.

15 Going Blind

This would be the worst to go blind, hopefully it never happens to me

You can't see anything anymore. Your wife friends and everyone you ever saw. You need someone to help you go everywhere

I actually am blind with an assistant reading all of this for me the keys have braille but I can type really fast

I would be so terrified.

16 Painful Death

I was once in a rush and took some food with me that got stuck in my throat. My body was almost paralyzed and I couldn't breathe properly. I couldn't cough it up or swallow it down. If it wasn't for another person in my house calling for an ambulance, I'd probably died that day because of brain damage due to lack of oxygen. Extremely painful.

I once had a fever of 105 degrees Fahrenheit and stuff stuck in my lungs. It was a thing called croop, luckily it wasn't pneumonia but it was hard to move and every time I sat up it felt like my pillow was on fire! I had to sleep with tons of ice packs all over me. It stunk. I was really little when this happened so I thought I would die. The scariest part is, with such a high fever I actually could've.

This is number 1, it's so scary thinking of everything... Like fires, murders, shark attacks, crocodile attacks, swarms, drowning, shot, stabbed, poisoned, diagnosed with a disease, falling to death, freeze to death, being buried alive, exploded by a bomb, and a tons of more

I couldn't I imagine a more painful death that having you limbs and private parts cut off and dying because of blood loss and/or gangrene and infections

17 Sleeping With Justin Bieber

*refuses to think about this*

My girlfriend would be so pissed that I cheated on her with the worst singer of all time.

Isn't sleeping with Nicki Minaj even worse?

The next morning, I'll wake up in hell!

18 Being Forever Alone

I was always alone. I have schizophrenia and one of the things I do is isolate myself, I was without friends and family didn't care much. It was like hell and was tormented with pain. I think the worst thing is t be always without someone to share life with.

You just don't know the sadness this can bring until you've got to deal with this for a long time

This is already a slot, but it's rephrased.

I guess I understand this once very well.

19 Get Bullied

Really. Justin Bieber is worst then bullying? People are really taking the JB jokes way too far. JB should be at the bottom of the list and this should be number 5.

This is very bad search up Amanda Todd in the YouTube search bar and you'll see how serious this is. I was bullied from 2011-2013. And had to move schools because of it and now I have another bully and I have to move again. Out of state. She called me fat, stupid, dimwit, gg (goody goody), etc. like I said now I have to move again because this kid was older than me and could really hurt me. Thanks a lot my secret bully. (In sarcastic voice) yay can't wait to move.

Bullying is a terrible experience, coming from a healthy narcissist. I've never been bullied because of high confidence, but if you get bullied often, remember they're wrong. The only way to stop getting bullied are tell a trusted adult, learn to be a healthy narcissist (a healthy narcissist means that you have high self esteem and you feel nothing can put you down) and stand up for the bully yourself. I used to put myself down a lot, but thanks to narcissism it made my life a lot better.

I was bullied by a boy who was the same age as me at Primary School, from year 2, to year 3, year 4, year 5 and finally year 6... And the stupid horrible Primary School headteacher and teachers did nothing about it!

20 A Very Important Person In Your Life Dies In Front of You

Unless the person is Mario. He dies in front of me all the time (due to my bad playing)

Can't give any relevant comments for these...

It's better to sacrifice.

That's horrible!

21 You Get Robbed

Once I came home from... I think it was dinner... And as we entered the house my dog was shining and barking and she was so scared and angry. My papa said it was nothing but as we came closer to the kitchen to put away leftovers, we realized our back door was open. My papa said it was my sisters fault until... We realized all three laptops were missing. We went back to my room and I said "Papa, I don't feel so good." He told me it was just because the robbers came. But then we realized... They pepper sprayed my dog! (POOR LITTLE JUNIE) Since my sister was at a sleepover my papa called their house and asked if I could stay there for the night. It was okay but I was scared to death.

It's even worse when they make your environment worse by pressure with the addition of their weapons and their high stakes demands which provides mental and physical force against the victim which that's my explanation of how the environment could be worse if you get robbed.

My cousins' house actually got broken into once and it was shocking and scary, to them AND to us and our other cousins as well.

One of my biggest fears.

22 Trapped Under Ice

Well sing Trapped Under Ice by Metallica and the ice will melt

You could try to sing Trapped Under Ice by Metallica, but then Justin Bieber tapes your mouth and starts singing Baby to make the Ice thicker! Stupid Justin Bieber has to ruin everything.

Screaming! I'm Trapped Under Ice!

You must be very, very unlucky or out of your mind for this to happen to you.

23 Being Burned Alive

I think this would hurt worst than being buried alive...

I don't see how Justin Bieber is worse than being burned alive.

I said at one time if I die I want it to be in an explosion Well I almost got my wish in an Industrial accident
there was an explosion and fire Lots of fire I got burned and other injuries but survived No You do not want to Burn to Death! GOD did intervene and saved ME I do Believe that is why I am writing this

This totally need more vote imagine being burn alive but my feet I burn them when I was a little kid

24 Accidentally Killing Your Significant Other

At least you killed somebody. be sure to wear gloves that cover your entire hands, be silent, use light boots, a mask, use a generic knife, wear black clothes, and a hood. And that no one saw it. And also, if you see or have one, run away with an Aston Martin Vanquish. If it's not yours, throw it in a lake or a river. Take off your mask and hood when no one is seeing, and WALK normally to your hideout. This works better when it is cold and dark outside.

I have experienced this when my girlfriend died from a heroin overdose, with horse I got her, and the guilt from that is worst feeling I have ever experienced

Anakin, you're breaking my heart.

Why is this not number one

25 You Become Homeless

This can happen very quickly in fact. I know a person in a house his was renting when the landlord died. The family of the landlord after that decided to sell the house. He did get 6 months to find something else but he didn't find something in that short period. He had to rent a hangar to move all his stuff and going back to his mother. You could say that he had some luck because what if you don't have family anymore?

My church works with homeless people it's so sad to think of what they are going through. One time my dad saw a homeless women sit outside the food building crying her eyes out! That's so sad because she didn't have a home or family to go back to. It really put a good perspective on my life and how good I have it.

I never want to have this happen! My church works with homeless people and it always gives me a perspective on how good I have it!

I really feel bad for the children who live alone on the streets...
