The Top Five Regrets of the Dying
A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing
By (author) Bronnie Ware
Part memoir, part inspirational guide, in The Top Five Regrets of the Dying, Bronnie shares her own life story, and interweaves it with the lessons she learned from her experiences with the patients she tended as a palliative care nurse. The top five regrets are: I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself; I wish I hadn't worked so hard; I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings; I wish I'd stayed in touch with my friends; and, I wish I'd let myself be happier.
