Five Most Common Deathbed Regrets

Regrets Many people have the same regrets when it comes to their life decisions. Below are the five most common regrets people make on their deathbeds according to Bronnie Ware, a woman who cared for the dying for many years:

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 I had let myself be happier.”
