Not Saying “I Love You” Before Someone Dies – Three simple words, one comforting thing to take solace in.
You’re going to die someday. Sorry if that sounded like a threat, but it’s really just a fact. One day, it will all come to an end. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a moment to reflect on your lifetime. If you’re even luckier, that moment will not be filled with thoughts of what you should or should not have done, but how happy you are with your decisions. While there’s no way to tell which choices you’ll rue when your days on earth are about to be over, perhaps these common deathbed regrets can help steer you towards a happy ending.
Take a look (you won’t regret it)!
Not Having More Self Confidence – Get confident, stupid.
Not Being True To Oneself – Do you!
Worrying Too Much About How Others See You – Unless you’re an optometrist, relax.
Being Controlled By Fear – “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” – F.D.R., right before he jumped the Grand Canyon on roller blades
