Everyone has experiences that they wish they could forget, and definitely would never want to go through again.


Once, when I was in middle school, my pants ripped in two after falling down the stairs. It was both painful and embarrassing, and now I am always extra careful when I go up the stairs.

Redditor u/jnhdavid got people to talk about their lowest moments by asking… What's an experience you don't ever want to go through again?

10. Kidney stones are no joke. 

"Kidney stones. Took me 6 days from when the discomfort into pain started but felt like 6 years. The pain was causing me to nauseated which doesn't mix well with pain killers. Ultimately had to get admitted and passed them the night before I was to have surgery."

9. Post-appendectomy bathroom breaks are horrific.

"I hated having to figure out how to poop and pee again for the two weeks after surgery because I felt like was going to tear out my internal and external stitches."

"All of this. I didn't sh!t for a week out of fear."

8. Public bathrooms are bad enough.

"This summer my group ate something very bad before taking a night train that was leading us to take the airplane home. 10 out of 16 we were had bad diarrhea/vomit. Fun was not had. We felt like dying."

7. Pooping in public sucks.

"In my first grade I shat in my pants and I didn't even have an underwear. To spice that up there was a fire drill in which I had to stand without shorts among the whole school. Most Embarrassing moment of my life"

6. Nothing like the movies.

"Being stuck in a mental hospital. It's not like in the movies but it's the feeling of being so close to freedom yet so far away."

5. I can't help but agree.

"The entirety of middle school. No thanks."

4. Colon health is important.

"Colonoscopy. The surgery itself isn't that bad, it's the prep that sucks"

3. Heartbreak is never easy.

"I was in a relationship for almost 3 years. I know it wasn't perfect and we had some issues but overall she made me really happy and I thought what we had was so special. Then just one days she says she wants to break up without giving me much more reason than "it's best for her". It really does make you feel abandoned, and since she was pretty nice about it I feel like the only person I can blame is myself. 3 months into the process and it's not been a fun time."

2. Anywhere but Boston!

"Driving in Boston.

I swear, they designed their roads with purposeful malice."

1. The miracle of life.

"Watching my wife have a C-section.

Twice is enough."

RevFernie

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
