There's a nurse named Bronnie Ware who told Inspiration and Chai after working for years with people who'd left the hospital and gone home to die. And in those last few weeks of their life, she found people drop all the pretense and start being totally honest.
She's heard tons of people on their deathbeds share their biggest regrets. Here are the five she heard most often. It's a really interesting list . . . and a lot to think about for those of us NOT on our deathbeds.
#1.) I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life that others expected of me. This is the most common regret, and generally comes from people whose dreams went unfulfilled.
