top 5 regrets people make on their deathbed

Today I read a blog post where a nurse revealed the top 5 regrets people make on their deathbed. She worked in nursing for years and these are the ones she heard most.

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends. 

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

I am happy to say I won’t be regretting any of those. Maybe number 3, but I’m getting better about expressing my feelings every day. Thanks to my therapist. ^_^ I let myself be happy, I’m great at staying in touch with friends spread across the world, I don’t work hard(for the most part), and I live a life true to myself. I don’t give an eff what people think. *sigh* I do.  I think everyone does to a point, but I don’t let other people affect me so much, that it changes who I am.
Check out the blog here. The author goes into detail about each regret. Pretty interesting and inspiring.
