No, I feel fine, but a nurse has just published a list of the five top regrets which dying patients had. A morbid topic, but it is pointless talking of death if the wisdom from the event can’t be transmitted to those young enough to prevent having the same regret themselves. The five regrets, in order of occurrence are:
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 hadn’t worked so hard. (mostly men of an agegroup where women were not the breadwinners, who missed out on family life)
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 that I had let myself be happier.
The first one is the most common, and I think also the most tragic. Nobody should ever have to have that regret. Carpe diem.
