  1. Wow. It’s easy to see how these would be the top regrets, but it seems hard to avoid having them, even if aware of them. I’m trying to grow into the courage to live an authentic life, which means swimming against the stream and not being true to the life others expect of me. But I’ve done a very bad job of staying in touch with friends. I need to focus on changing that. Thanks for posting this.

  2. Same here, Bill.

    I’m also trying very hard now for many years to live an authentic life. But it’s a quite a challenge to do that in our consumeristic, materialistic, and narcissistic society.

    Although it’s quite a challenge, there’s really no other way to live our lives in a fulfilling way. In the words of Shakespeare: “To thine own self be true.”

    Glad you liked the post…
