One life, many choices. Reflecting on regrets
Terrific piece in the Observer last weekend (15/8/2010) – “The Top Five Regrets of the Dying”. It refers to a short article written last year by Bronnie Ware, a woman who spent many years nursing the dying. These were the most prevalent:
I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
I wish I had let myself be happier.
Makes you think, doesn’t it?
