Crux of Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware:

  • 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 – all that remains in the final weeks, love and relationships.
  • I wish that I had let myself be happier – Many did not realize until the end that happiness is a choice.
