A hospice nurse named 5 things people regret before dying

Hospice patients often reflect on their lives and their meaning. Many of them share their thoughts at the end of their journey, shedding light on real truths, says Bronnie Ware, a nurse who has had extensive experience in caring for the seriously ill.

The American spent many years of her career working in hospice care. As a palliative care nurse, she has seen many people on their deathbeds and cared for them in their last hours, Metro writes. Ware covers this difficult topic in her internationally bestselling memoir, The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.

Bronnie says that some of the most common remorse patients experience is related to their careers. She adds that this is especially true for men, given that the current older generation has positioned them as the breadwinners of the family. "Many people regret spending so much time working instead of spending time with family and friends.

The second lament of those on their deathbeds is about being true to themselves. According to Bronnie, this is the most common regret she has heard among patients. In her opinion, it's people's sadness over dreams they never achieved or even tried to achieve.

"Many people have suppressed their feelings to please others," says Bronnie, "and as a result, they have settled for a mediocre existence and have not become who they really wanted to be. Many developed illnesses related to the bitterness and resentment they carried around."

I would like to allow myself to be happier

Whether it's the fear of change or the fear of letting others down, many people take the easy way out. Over and over again. Throughout a lifetime, this can lead to a lack of happiness. "Life is a choice. It's your life," Bronnie wants to tell people, "Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly. Choose happiness."
