#5 Regret People Have Before Dying

“I wish I had let myself be happier” …

You and only you are responsible for your happiness. You must not hitch your wagon to others and put them in charge. This will only ever result in disappointment. Work out what is important to you, what you want to achieve and experience and simply, do it!

# 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 need the right ones. They say that in the end, we can probably count good friends on one hand. Sincerity trumps popularity any day of the week so choose wisely and ensure that you surround yourself with the right people.

Real life friendships that involve proper physical interaction are real so pick up the phone and meet up, do things together and make time for each other. Facebook is a great way to keep in touch but it is far more superficial so remember to keep it real.

#3 Regret People Have Before Dying

“I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings” …

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

You must say what you mean and mean what you say. Regret eats you from the inside out and will wither you emotionally and physically. Stand up for yourself and don’t back away.

#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 realising their potential results in an unrequited life. It is important to pursue your ambitions and hobbies in order to avoid a feeling of disappointment and ultimately 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 drum of others. You enter this world on your own, you will depart the same way. It is not selfish to expect to live in a way that makes you happy. It is exactly the advice that you would give family, friends and those in your life.
