Bronnie Ware, a nurse who counselled the dying in their last days, revealed the most common regrets we have at the end of our lives. Bronnie writes of the phenomenal clarity of vision that people gain at the end of their lives, and how we might learn from their wisdom.

I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
I wish that I had let myself be happier.
