The Top 5 Deathbed Regrets

Subscribe to 105.7 The Hawk on

You might have heard Free Beer and Hot Wings talking about this subject on Tuesday.

A woman by the name of Bronnie Ware who worked for years in palliative care wrote a book about her experience with dying patients when she noticed there was a common theme to their regrets.

She wrote “The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying” to chronicle her time with these patients.

And, shockingly, there was no mention of more sex or bungee jumps….lol

I listened intensely myself, because I’ve lost a best friend and both my parents over the past 11 years, and these deathbed musings are incredibly compelling.

My father said simply, “I worried my whole life. I don’t know why I did that.”

And that broke my heart in two for him.

But I was then determined to not only not repeat the same mistake (sometimes I’m successful and sometimes I’m not) but to share it with as many people as I could to warn them that worry truly is a waste of your life and a killer of the joy that should be had while we’re here, and you’ll undoubtedly wish you had let go of it.

Here are the Top 5 Regrets:

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 didn’t work so hard.

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.

Which regrets are you in danger of having one day when the Grim Reaper comes to call?
