WHAT WILL I REGRET ON MY DEATH BED?

I doubt it will be: ‘I wish I’d spent more time at work…'”

Perhaps it would be something like:

I regret the times when I set a bad example, and there were people who followed my lead.

My indifference in the face of someone’s suffering.

Failing to say so many words of praise, recognition and encouragement to those who deserved them or needed them.

That I wasted money on things that I didn’t need and never used.

Taking advantage of someone who loved me, in order to get something for myself.

Savouring adulation even while knowing it was false.

The stubborn, vulgar or rude words that came out of my mouth.

Wasting so much time on empty things.

Ignoring God or the spiritual in my life.

But then again is there anything worth regretting except not living it up!!

Wise words.
what good is regret?
maybe we should live like the Edith Piaf song
Non je ne regrette rien
What Seaivy said.
Regret is good if it makes us determined not to repeat the bad things. :)
I somehow can't imagine you being indifferent to suffering.
