People Describe The Absolute Worst Feeling Ever
Image by cocoparisienne from Pixabay

Life is full of uncomfortable, crappy moments. It's how we get through those moments that defines the way we build character.

And at this rate, I should have the greatest, most dignified, full character ever created. I can't remember all the times I've been left with uneasy and just plain yuck feelings.

A lot of those feelings can be self inflicted due to the dramas of life. But we've all been there. Sometimes, well, a lot of times, we hit low spots. You learn quickly that just about anything can drag you down low.

Redditoru/marcz52wanted everyone to open up about the things in life that have left us with feelings of unease, by asking:

What is the worst feeling ever?

Guilt. That is a big one for me. I hate guilt, mostly because I wish I could avoid it. And guilt finds a way to pile on quickly with age. I'm starting to feel it.

Screw Ups

"When you screw up and a bunch of people were impacted. You're ashamed and have apologised but everyone's still pissed and too polite to mention it but you know they're all still steamed."

- qw-rty

"this isn't too bad"

"Broke my back during an accident a few years ago. Made a full recovery, but the night after they put chapstick sized screws in my back to hold it all together remains the most painful and miserable experience of my entire life. Woke up from surgery thinking "this isn't too bad," then entered the depths of hell a few hours later when the anesthesia faded."

"Fun fact: There's a limit to how many painkillers they can give you right after you've been under complete anesthesia. They increased the dosage the next day and i was alright, but that first night was something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy."

Upchuck!

"The feeling before you throw up really warm saliva, stomach hurting and heart moving."

- greggoryshine

"Oh man. Finally deciding to throw up at 11 PM after an all day hangover with nothing in your stomach. I've done it quite a few times. It's so brutal in those first few moments. Eventually you do feel better than before though. Don't be like me. Make the choice to throw up early. THROW UP LIKE A MAN!!"

Anxiety Issues

"Dealing with post partum anxiety. During a little family drive all was well until I looked at the dash. I had a panic attack over the gas gauge being close to E, despite us near a gas station and fine for money etc all of that. Absolutely bonkers panic attack. It was completely unwarranted yet it happened. I'm currently working on it with CB Therapy and it's been helpful."

- Feralcrumpetart

Oh No!

"Suddenly remembering something very important you were supposed to do at work at about 10 at night."

- EvitaGunther

How are you feeling so far? I've had more comfortable reads. Some of this is giving me anxiety. And that is the last thing I need. But alas, here we are. I suppose we should continue.

Unease!

"That dread in the pit of your stomach when you don't know if someone you love is alive or dead. I wouldn't wish that on anyone."

- kalwayne3573

Silence

"Looking around and realizing there is no one you can really talk to anymore."

- Obvious-Solid-453

"Had COVID in March and had to isolate, when I was having a really hard time and believe to be COVID induced panic attacks... had no one to call just felt like a bother... not a good feeling."

- Amasse24

"I'm forced to be alone because my family wants me to come back home. I just wish they weren't trying to isolate me and force me to please a bunch of rich designers because honestly I'm heartbroken miserable and sad all the time. I just don't feel like I can connect with anyone anymore because everyone is constantly in their head imagining things about me instead of just talking to me."

- Shintaigou

Farewell...

"The death of a loved one."

- Deckham

"Especially if it's sudden, even if they're older. I lost my grandmother a few months ago to an accident, she always seemed so strong, like she'd live forever. It feels the same as when I lost my aunt, almost 13 years ago, to a brain aneurysm. She was only in her 40s. Losing both of them hurts in a different way than when someone passes after a long illness."

- knittybitty123

One Sided

"When you love someone, not only just care for them and appreciate their presence, but truly love them. You can't imagine a moment without them, a future that doesn't include them or a lifetime that isn't besides them. they are your muse, your motivation, and everything in between, without them, you feel less. they make you the person you want to be. Well when the feeling isn't reciprocated, that can suck majorly."

- chey5

PROOF!

"Everyone accusing you of lying when you're not actually lying and no way to proof it."

- ConfusedSuperNeko

Death, lies and despair. At least they don't last forever, just until the next round. Next time you feel this yuck, try to breathe and smile. I don't know, It can't hurt.

The key to any successful relationship is communication.

The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.

But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.

Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.

What is a "black sheep" anyway?

It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.

People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.

And when it is requested, think before you speak.

People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
