# 4 Regret People Have Before Dying

“I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends” …

You don’t need a lot of friends, you do however need the right ones! As life speeds up, friends fall off. As time goes by, it is often difficult to reconnect until it is sadly too late.

Now more than ever there is no excuse for not keeping in touch. Facebook is a great way to keep in touch as are skype and facetime. Good friends are hard to find and it’s worth the effort to save the regret.

One of the most detrimental things to your health is suppressing your feelings. It is a major cause of cancer and other nasties.

#2 Regret People Have Before Dying

“I wish I hadn’t worked so hard” 

Bronnie said that whilst this was something that the Men said, on reflection, it was the women who were living a traditional homemaker role that were most regretful.

Staying at home with the kids and not realizing your potential can result in an unrequited life. It is important to pursue your ambitions and hobbies so that you can live a purposeful life without regret or resentment.

#1 Regret People Have Before Dying

“I wish I’d had the courage to live the life I wanted to live, not the one that others expected me to have”

It’s hardly surprising, but also incredibly sad that the biggest regret is dancing to the tune of others. You enter this world on your own, you will depart the same way.

It is not selfish to expect to live life YOUR WAY. You need to live with intent and know what you want. Always take note of how it makes you feel and follow your bliss! It is the advice you would give others so why not take it yourself! In other words, don’t put off your happy life!
