    1. 3. I know
      4. LOL
      7. yeah
      8. Hate those
      11. yes… 🙁 lol
      12. not always
      16. Oh yeah
      18. Lol a few times
      19. Yeah sometimes
      23. 🙂
      24. True
      26. Yeah. But it’s just He doesn’t have the qualities im looking for.
      34. Hmm. I think… lol

    2. Teehee, I can relate to nearly all of these; however, I don’t have much a problem with listening to the music I like. Then again, I tend to not listen to music with negative/sexualized messages, so I guess nowadays that essentially brings it down to Christian music and Japanese music ^^” (although once I learn Japanese I guess I’ll probably stop listening to some of those songs, too).

    3. When the you’re the ONLY teenager in church and are expected to volunteer with everything. (Seriously though, we have a great 0-5 nursery program, a grade 1-5 program, a middle school program, but I make up the youth group.) and when the youth pastor is asked to do a sermon and makes references to you because you are the youth group.

      • Oh my gosh! I can totally relate to the girls who get off topic during small groups! Especially when the messaged related to something that’s going on in your life and it really got to you on a spiritual level!

    4. 11, 13, 17, 26, 29, and 38 all speak to me on a spiritual level. ESPECIALLY number 29. -_- I just graduated high school and so many girls in my class are engaged, married, living with their boyfriend or pregnant. And I’m over here like “I like that boulder. That is a nice boulder.” (thumbs up to the cool cat that gets the reference)

    5. I can relate to a lot if these, but especially the purity ring one. I personally wear mine on my right ring finger to avoid confusion. However, I was volunteering at a kindergarten a few weeks back, and I had this one adorable little girl point to it and ask very curiously “Are you married?”

    6. I can relate to a lot of these. One I can’t relate to is #36 because my family runs the coffee shop, and everyone depends on the coffee and “quick” breakfast. A couple that relate to is #33 and #41. It’s sad but it’s true.

    7. Honestly, I find a lot of these problems painful and disturbing, not necessarily funny. I guess laughing about them through gifs can be therapeutic, but shouldn’t we be doing things about them instead of just coping? A lot of these things are easily fixed. I got rid of plenty of these by simply not caring about what other people think and by not going to church.

      • ummm… pretty sure that coffee tasting bad, the worship team not playing a great band, phone going off in church, the guy you like being the pastor’s kid, early services at church and such are not disturbing. the one I find even remotely painful/ disturbing/ whatever is the freinds getting engaged you one. The rest are like first world problems, except most of them relate mostly to Christians.

      • I completely agree! I am Roman Catholic and a lot of these don’t apply, but some of them shocked me. For example, Snap-chatting during church? That was really sad that people would be that disrespectful. A lot of these can be fixed like you said, especially little things like the coffee. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE going to mass on Sundays!! A lot of my problems get fixed when I give them to God during the mass. I feel so at peace and the holy spirit just comes into me and sets me on fire after Sundays. Even if you aren’t Catholic, I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way after a service!! Maybe you should give church a try, I think if you go with an open heart you will find yourself really enjoying it!! :):):)

    8. Most of these apply only to more modern, evangelical-style Christians. I go to a pretty traditional Episcopalian church, and we don’t really have a lot of this. I used to go to a contemporary church, though, so I still get a lot of them 🙂

    9. Why does everyone love Hillsong?? WHY??? Sure their messages are fine but…but…they take six minutes when the entirety of their lyrics could be sung in like, 45 seconds…MAYBE a minute if there’s two verses instead of one and 12 choruses–that are one or two lines long. I just don’t understand what’s exciting about that.

      • I KNOW. And they’re so BORING. They use plain, predictable beats, and NO instruments besides guitar and piano. Way too long, way too little content. And they’re so stinkin’ overplayed.

        • Hillsong is just preference. That’s how they worship and its good to support people in all ways of worship. There’s also hillsong young & free which is dance music…just a recommendation

        • IKR!!!!!!!!!!! I listen to bethel. They are much better in my opinion, and did you know that jesus culture was bethels youth group worship team???

    10. Ok seriously, I’ve always thought that 37 was my number and have had some strange cases where 37 just.. worked. But this.. #37 couldn’t be more accurate. Seriously. My sister and I are the ONLY teenagers. -_- #longlive37
      And number 40 is completely true for me to. My bestie bro lives 4.5 hours away. 🙁

    11. Numbers 13 and 38 are so relatable! Sometimes, when I’m listening to a Christian band, I’ll think to myself, “Wow, if you just change your perspective, it could really be a love song…” and then there are the times when you’re praying and the waiter comes with your food. I always feel bad for them when that happens because they look so sorry.

    12. #40 is soooo relatable! I met this amazing guy at Impact in Tocooca, GA and he lives 2 1/2 hours away from me…it really stinks. But with the internet, we can Skype and message each other. 🙂
