Top 5 Regrets of the Dying

Certain that many people have read this article before but guess it is always good to re-visit this article.  Tamworth-based writer and blogger Bronnie Ware shared from her experience as a palliative care nurse the various main life lessons from hours spent with the dying.  These are the top 5 regrets and it is something worth reflecting upon.

I wish:

1.  I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.  This was the most common response.

2. I hadn't worked so hard. "They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship.  All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.

3.  I'd had the courage to express my feelings

4. I had stayed in touch with my friends

5.  That I had let myself be happier.


You can see that the one regret people don't have is that they should have spent more time on their work or in office.

  2. We just need to ask ourselves this simple question:

    The day when doctor tells us that we only have one year left to live.

    Do we quickly rush back to office and tell our bosses this?

    "Boss, give me more works as I am dying. I need to work harder."

  3. Pauper, prince and king, the day you die is the day all of us is the same - Dust only and nothing else.
