To all my readers out there, sorry to bring down the mood on this one, but I believe this post you are about to read will be a life changing article in the way that you see your life and how you are living it at the moment. This article is written by Bronnie Ware, a palliative care worker who has worked with a countless number of patients who are sadly seeing their last days on earth. When Bronnie had questioned the patients about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. Here are the most common five:




1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me
This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people have had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.

It is very important to try and honor at least some of your dreams along the way.

From the moment that you lose your health, it is too late. Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard - This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship.

Women also spoke of this regret. But as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.
By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. And by creating more space in your life, you become happier and more open to new opportunities, ones more suited to your new lifestyle.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings - Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result.

As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming.

We cannot control the reactions of others. However, although people may initially react when you change the way you are by speaking honestly, in the end it raises the relationship to a whole new and healthier level. Either that or it releases the unhealthy relationship from your life. Either way, you win.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends - Often they would not truly realize the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying.

It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. But when you are faced with your approaching death, the physical details of life fall away. People do want to get their financial affairs in order if possible. But it is not money or status that holds the true importance for them. They want to get things in order more for the benefit of those they love. Usually though, they are too ill and weary to ever manage this task. It all comes down to love and relationships in the end. That is all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier
This is a surprisingly common one.

Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice.

They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called ‘comfort’ of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content. When deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again.
When you are on your deathbed, what others think of you is a long way from your mind. How wonderful to be able to let go and smile again, long before you are dying.

Life is a choice. It is YOUR life. Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness.

Number 1 sums up all the rest in a sense. Being true to yourself...

Great job man! Keep things steady, be positive, keep your faith in Jesus/God (if you believe) and trying to be good to your family and friends.

Not knocking you at all homie but what do YOU want to do? Sounds like everything is based off of other people right now.

Im just saying, what do you want? Whats gonna make you happy? Youre young right now but just dont get in that zone of coat-tailing and going out of your way to just be likeable. Focus a lil more on your goals and what you might want out of life right now

This is some real sh*t right here...I'm 22 and I'm in a sort of life-limbo right now...trying to figure out which direction I want to take my life in. Right now I just feel like it's a bunch of different sh*t that I'm trying to do and instead of choosing one thing to pursue I'm just living kinda stagnant right now, hoping the right choice will fall into my lap. We'll see though, I'm young so I have plenty of time to figure it out. I'm just trying to make sure that whatever choice I make, I got that Number 1 rule up there in mind.

i feel like there's gotta be a balance. not everybody can do whatever the fu*k they want, people actually have to get up everyday and work so its not like everyone can live every day like it's their last. it's all about finding that balance between doing sh*t you dont want to do or doing what you'd rather not be doing and then living your life. BUT if you love your job and getting up every morning to do it, your job and your life become one.

go to college

even if you don't want to, even if you feel it won't be worth it and you will go to college for 4 years and then go get a job that you could of got before college.

education is priceless (even though it has a price)
