Bronnie Ware is a nurse who has worked with dying patients for years. The Next Web is a tech website. What happens when you put the two together? You get an interesting post on the Top 5 Regrets People Have on their Deathbeds.
According to The Next Web, they took the “grandmotherly bits of advice about dreams having gone unfulfilled” and supplemented them with “some rockstar advice on how to not have these regrets in the digital age.” It makes for interesting reading.
I’ve listed the five regrets below. Check out the post for their comments on each.
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
- I wish I didn’t work 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 that I had let myself be happier.
I have to admit that I resonate with at least a couple of these. Although, I’m afraid that the first one on my list will be, “I wish I’d spent more time with my daughters.” I hope not. But since I’m on the road this week, I wonder.
