Bonnie Ware, a nurse in Australia, published a book called ‘The Top Five Regrets of Dying’. She has worked for several years as a nurse caring for people who are in the last 12 weeks of their lives. Over the time spent caring and consoling, she recorded their dying words and a common theme of regrets.

The number 5 regret is ‘I wish that I would have let myself be happier’, followed by ‘I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.’  ‘I wish I had the courage to express my feelings,’ came in third. Next, ‘I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.’ At the top, ‘I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself and not what others expected of me’.
