The regrets are:
5. I wish I had let myself be happier
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings
2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
It seems that truthfulness, honesty, courage lie at the heart of these. Also the pain of realising afterwards the gift, the unwasteable gift of every moment.
