How to avoid regrets on your deathbed


There’s been quite a bit of talk lately about the regrets that people come to realize when they are on their death bed. There comes a time, when all that you are able to do is look back and reflect on your life and the choices you made. You spend your final days, weeks or months looking back at what went right, and what went wrong in your life.

For most, they experienced extreme clarity and wisdom upon looking back on their lives and formed regrets on how they lived life. A palliative nurse was counseling the dying during their last few days on earth, and she documented the top regrets she heard from those at the end of their lives.

You can read the full article here, Top five regrets of the dying.

But something I did notice, was that people do not regret the things they did in life, but they regret the things they didn’t do…

“No one on his deathbed ever said, I wish I had spent more time on my business.”
-Paul Tsongas

In this post, I will go through the top 5 regrets experienced by people on their deathbed and hope to give you some tips on how to avoid such regrets when your time comes. These are just the main regrets, and while I am not saying you won’t still feel some regrets, hopefully, this will prevent the biggest ones.

My experience dealing with depression

So I thought I would go back in time a little here, and talk about my experience dealing with depression because back in 2011-2014 I was very depressed, and I had no idea I was experiencing that at the time. I didn’t actually realize that I was depressed at all… I thought that this was just a normal feeling to have in life.

Sure I was experiencing suicidal thoughts, extreme uselessness, and complete unworthiness at the time, but doesn’t everyone feel that way? Isn’t that just normal?

My thoughts on Veganism

“I personally chose to go vegan because I educated myself on factory farming and cruelty to animals, and I suddenly realized that what was on my plate were living things, with feelings. And I just couldn’t disconnect myself from it any longer.” -Ellen DeGeneres

Being a vegan seems like it has become a very hot topic amongst many people nowadays, what with the countless documentaries, novels, and articles on the subject, and thousands of people making the switch each and every day, it is no longer a notion just for the hippies. Becoming a vegan, vegetarian, or simply choosing to eat less animal product, in my opinion, is one of the most rewarding experiences of your life! Choosing to eat a plant-based diet is in my honest opinion, one of the greatest things you can do for mother earth and for our environment, and finally but not least, for yourself. We can all start choosing a healthier menu than the one we have been told to eat our whole lives. Simple education on the subject alone has made a tremendous impact on my life, and it truly was an eye-opening journey, that I believe each needs to take on their own.

I, unfortunately, am not here to try to convince you to become vegan or eat more plant stuff. It is simply my personal journey and if you learn or realize even one thing by reading this then I am happy. It is inevitably up to you and only you to decide whether eating a more plant-based diet is a good idea for you.
