Like everybody, I've reached a few low points in my life. 

Sometimes, when I think I couldn't get any lower, I discover a whole new sub-basement.

But compared to the people on this list, I'm absolutely killin' it. Which is why I want to take a moment to thank these hot messes for making me feel better about myself.

Thank you, truly.

And they're all literally so ungrateful — except Whiskers, because she's the only one who's ever truly been there for you.

Why were you so good to me? Why did you spoil me so much? Look at me now!!!

This is why seatbelt laws should apply to both humans and tubs of ice cream.

Actually, this is what successful people eat for breakfast.

Because if you can make it through this, you can accomplish just about anything.

6. Bonus tip: Don't break up with your boyfriend within 12 hours of getting a spray tan.

Why am I crying?

These fries look like they were mummified in 1324 B.C., exhumed in the late 1920s, and laid out on this baking sheet in 2017.

They're definitely cursed.

Dude, come on, there are like 400 YouTube tutorials on how to safely remove these things.

I swear, even my 11-year-old sister posted one.

I probably could have predicted this one.

It was plotting something from the start.

I'm sorry, I didn't know I was being discriminated against because my choice of makeup happens to be face paint.

That finishing spray should work for all lifestyle choices.
