What is the biggest mistake among people

REUE - These 5 mistakes people regret most before they die ...

Imagine just before your life is coming to an end. You lived for some time and now the lights are slowly but surely going out. You are scared because you do not know what will come after that. Is there a life after death? Who knows. And suddenly your life passes you by like in a movie. You see all the things that you did and didn't do. What would you regret the most?

Bronnie Ware addressed this question and wrote a book called “5 things the dying regret most". In today's article, we're going to cover these 5 things so you don't make the same mistakes.

But who is Bronnie Ware and why can she say something about it? She was a palliative care worker. A nurse for terminally ill people and accompanied many people at home for weeks until they died. The dying people opened their hearts to her and named all the things that they themselves regret most. Bronnie Ware made a book out of this, which should give you and me the incentive not to make the same mistakes.

Now, let's move on to the 5 biggest mistakes people regret most before they die.

Mistake # 1: Life of Other Lives

Do you live the life that you want for yourself or the life that others want for you? One of the biggest mistakes that keep coming up just before deathbed: The life of someone else's life. It makes me sad to imagine that you are lying on your deathbed and have to admit to yourself that you have thrown away this whole life by always doing the things that others have expected and asked of you instead of fulfilling your own wishes.

How many people are in relationships that they don't want to be in? In jobs that you don't enjoy? In friendships that don't make them happy? If you live by the expectations of others, you will never be able to meet your own expectations. But whose life is it? Yours or that of the others? I always think that we humans have no problem with selfishness. We have a problem with people not paying enough attention to themselves and doing the things that really make them happy.

You have the chance to live your own life today. Keep that in mind. Or do you want to regret all of this one day?

Mistake # 2: sinking into work

Bonnie tells the story about John. John is a man who worked all his life. His wife Margaret was just waiting for him to retire. When he finally did, Margaret was planning a lot of trips, was happy to finally live her life with her husband, but by then it was too late. Margaret died shortly afterwards. John loved his job, but lost sight of his wife. His career and status were more important to him. Until it was too late. Margaret left, remorse remained.

Bronnie Ware says that All men, those who had cared for her regretted having worked too much and lived too little. All out of the fear of not having enough money. Unbelievable, is not it? Now ask yourself honestly: do you work too much? Do you work too much and do you live too little? Are you spending too little time with the loved ones in your life? Are you pushing for 70 hours and telling yourself that it is necessary?

Don't make the same mistake as John. Even if you enjoy work, it may not take up your entire life. Otherwise you will lose everything around it.

Mistake # 3: suppressing the feelings

When was the last time you expressed your feelings to the people you are close to? Many people rarely do this, if at all, including Jozsef. He noticed on his deathbed that he had never revealed his true feelings to his family and that they didn't really know him. He died without his family ever knowing how he really felt about them.

Now ask yourself: When was the last time I told my parents, siblings, children, spouses, friends, family members how I felt about them? How regularly do you do this?

I think you would not only strengthen the connection to the people, no, you would also live better. Bronnie Ware believes that many illnesses arise from suppressing emotions. I agree with this opinion and say that your life will be happier if you express your feelings on a daily basis.

If you want to know how to express your feelings, I'll link a great book for you. That really helped me. Well, I wrote it too. You can find my book “Fuck Smalltalk” on Amazon. Click here.

Mistake # 4: Losing touch with your friends

Bronnie Ware's experience is that everyone misses their friends when they die. The sad thing is that most people no longer even know where their friends actually live. In the course of time one has lost sight of each other. Work, family and life get in the way. The sooner you know it you're old and you haven't seen your friends in years.

Deep relationships are immensely important for your happiness. The next time you think about who is writing to whom first and that your friend should get in touch with you, just think about how many people make this mistake and at the end of their life regret not keeping in touch.

Mistake # 5: Not allowing yourself to be happy

According to Bonnie Ware, this is one of the biggest, if not the biggest mistakes you can make. Give yourself permission to be happy. You have a right to it from today. It's your life, it's your happiness If you want to be happy, you can be anytime. We have enough videos, posts, and podcasts to show you how to do it. If you don't give yourself permission as soon as possible, it may eventually be too late.

They were already 5 things the dying regret most If you already know me a little, you know that death is one of my favorite subjects, as crazy as it sounds. And thoughts like this always make me think. Because these mistakes are actually quite simple, actually many people know these mistakes, we often talk about them, but somehow almost everyone falls into these faux pas.

When I think about it now, I too tend to make one or two mistakes. If we don't keep realizing that we can die at any time, then we lose sight of the important things like friends, family and our own happiness. We say, "Oh, the dream can wait." Until it's too late.

That's it for me! I hope the post also gave you a little thought. Do you have any ideas about which things one regrets shortly before death? Then comment under the post! But make sure beforehand that you have "Like" this post or even share it on Facebook. So I know which texts you like and can devote myself more to certain topics. Thanks.

With this in mind: Use your time on this earth wisely!
