20 regrets in life you really don’t want to have

Q4UBDVd - Imgur

1) Not travelling. The world is too big for a life this short.

2) Sticking to one relationship out of comfort and fear. You don’t want to spend the rest of your life with someone where you keep wondering if the grass is greener on the other side. That’s how infidelity is born.

3) Not saying, “I love you” to your parents. Your parents are people too. You grow up. They grow old. They go first (supposedly).

4) Not having sex. The fact that you think this is a regret means you’ve yet to demystify it.

5) Always listening to others. And drowning out your own voice.

6) Not loving someone. Don’t be afraid to make what could be the best decision of your life.

7) Not apologizing. The mark of a real man is how he faces not just those he fears, but those he has wronged too.

8) Being paranoid as hell. Like, something bad will happen everyday.

9) Sticking to annoying friends all the time.

10) Then not standing up for yourself.

11) Acting super rashly. There’ll always be consequences.

12) Saving too much money for “security”. Your bank account wouldn’t matter on your deathbed.

13) Marrying the wrong person. Divorce is very real bitch.

14) Holding back.

15) Getting arrested. Haha I’ve never been there. But it doesn’t take a genius to know it’s super messed up. You’ll hurt those around you.

16) Being addicted to something. A life is not meant to be controlled by substances.

17) Not helping someone. If you have to think about it, usually not choosing to is the wrong choice. Then you will keep wondering why later.

18) Leaving your dreams in the dust.

19) Being too pissed, too sad, too depressed, too frustrated, too worried, too whatever. All the damn time.

20) Not having fun in life. You know you’re allowed to right?

    Hahaha! Nice list! My regret will be that I wish I didn’t work so hard. I know what Ware is saying here but I wish she’d phrased it differently. Many people find meaning, purpose and even a sense of identity in their work. It often leads to a feeling of earned success. Hard work can be one of life’s great satisfactions, especially if it provides you with an opportunity to express your talents. So I would venture that working hard is not what the dying regret but rather working too much and losing balance in their lives. And workaholics often sacrifice so much for so little. A simpler, less materialistic lifestyle, for instance, enables shorter working hours, greater freedom and more leisure.

    I don’t have any regrets in life. I did previously have some of the regrets you listed at some point of my life but now, I don’t really give that much of a damn to them.

    When we have regrets, it’s easy to stop moving forward by telling ourself that we’re done for. That’s definitely not good.
