Life is full of regrets, all of us have something inside which we wanted to do but never did. Even at this moment, we have a lot of desires which we want to fulfill but will definitely never do and later on, give excuses or throw blames on society, parents etc. According to the Collective Evolution, A nurse who worked for years with the dying, wrote a list of her findings into a book called ‘The Top Five Regrets of The Dying.’
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back on their journey, what they see is how many dreams have gone unfulfilled.
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
Working hard is obviously not a bad thing. But, what’s the fun of hard work if you are missing your partner’s companionship, your children’s youth, quality time with your family etc.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
Look, guys life is too short to hide your feelings. Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. But this is not the right way, just go for it. If you love someone, tell him or her, if you hate someone just say.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Happiness is a choice. People normally relates it to expectation. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.
