But every year here, hundreds, maybe thousands, of Japanese people literally work themselves to death.

Strangers Wrote Their Biggest Regrets…They All Used The Same Three-Letter Word. Often times when people are asked about regrets the response is a rehearsed, “I don’t have any regrets.” In reality, we all have and carry feelings of things we should have done or said but simply did not. How many times have we taken the safety route for fear of failure or thinking we were not good enough, only to realize the easiest decision ends up being the hardest one to live with.
