What are your Top 5 Regrets if you are dying?
Why stop to 5 regrets? Why hurt yourself with so many regrets?
Did you know what are the top five regrets of the dying?
Are the following top 5 regrets a matter of collecting data from the dying persons?
1- I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
2- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
3- I wish I had let myself be happier.
4- I wish I’d had the courage to express my true self.
5- I wish I’d lived a life true to my dreams, instead of what others expected of me.
My opinion is that only regret #2 make sense from the 5 regrets mentioned above.
The other 4 regrets are just abstract notions that are regurgitated while still among the living and do not express “my true self” as in #4.

And what about these major regrets:
6. Failed to tell my love partner that I love her, that she is the most beautiful, that you want to live by her side…
7. Failed to connect and communicate with my children and close relatives…
8. Failed to carry on an adventure that would have tested my metal
9. Been sold as a slave girl and used as a sex slave and resumed my life as if this is my destiny
10. Been sentenced to be stoned to death for eloping with someone I love…
11. Failed to “weave” long lasting friendships because I was too busy with minor tasks…
12. Regret for experiencing famine in childhood
It is said: “Better be ruled by someone who never felt hunger and experienced famine: The stomach remembers having been filled once…than the reverse alternative
