Nurse reveals the top 5 regrets people make on their deathbed
Author: Bronnie Ware For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for growth. When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again. 1. It is very important to try and honour at least some of your dreams along the way. 2. By simplifying your lifestyle and making conscious choices along the way, it is possible to not need the income that you think you do. 3. We cannot control the reactions of others. 4. It is common for anyone in a busy lifestyle to let friendships slip. 5. Life is a choice.
