How to have no regrets

WASHINGTON – If you think about not taking that job, losing a love or letting fear stop you from going forward, you are not alone. These are some regrets making a very important list.

The website Viral Nova compiled the list of 37 things that those nearing the end of their lives say are top regrets including:

  • Don’t be afraid to say, “I Love You.”
  • Don’t stay in a bad relationship as it can be hurtful and harmful in too many ways down the road.
  • Don’t stay in terrible job even though you may need to pay the rent, consider how long can you be miserable.
  • Spend time with your kids, your pets and travel as it’s a big world out there – go see it.

The advice to tackle looming regrets:

  • Put away the cell phone.
  • Lighten up on the text messages.
  • Live in the moment.
  • Don’t care too much what others think of you.

What will you regret when you get older? The answer, hopefully, shouldn’t be much.
