12 Things Most People Regret

2 years ago by Debbie Anderson in Lifestyle > Other

Hi darlings, I thought this was a top post. The top regrets at the end of life for most people are:
1 I wish I had spent more time with the people I love
2 I wish I had worried less
3 I wish I had forgiven more
4 I wish I had stood up for myself
5 I wish I had lived my own life
6 I wish I had been more honest
7 I wish I had worked less
8 I wish I had cared less about what people thought
9 I wish I had lived up to my full potential
10 I wish I had faced my fears
11 I wish I had stopped chasing the wrong things
12 I wish I'd lived more in the moment

What a sobering list. Which of these do you identify with? You're not dying, at least we hope not, but why wait till it's too late?

These are not 12 statements from 1 person. So they can contradict. Not to mention that most of us contradict ourselves anyhow.

No12-that's me. Life becomes so much more beautiful when you actually live in the moment.

I totally agree, your love ones and your family are very much no1. What will you regret most? The times you did not love, it's what you didn't give.

Live in the moment I think people mean: Don't have your head in the past, in the future or up your own xxxx but be there in the present!

I think that would be rather depressing, living today with your end in sight.

Norman

This christmas I spent a lot of time with family. I spent a lot of time, some real time, with family I had not spoken to for 5 years. And we had drifted apart for no good reason at all. Just misunderstandings and such, just gossip frankly. When I came face to face with these family members I found out the other side of the story and discovered how we allow life to fool us and rob us quite often. Don't let this happen to you as well. This is the season for getting together and staying together, and I for one am glad that Christmas came along.
