Here's my real response to MissEdithKeeler's 'Regrets of Dying'

Great post. In fact, let me just say I love your posts. Keep it up!

Strangely enough, I don't relate to the top 6 regrets of the dying, except maybe 'I wish I'd let myself be happier.' But how can someone do that when trapped in their circumstances, especially family problems for which there are no solutions? I think my regret is more like this:

'I wish I had made some different choices which I believe would have led to being happier.' But hindsight is always easier than foresight.

And I agree with you about money. I have plenty to live on. Not an exorbitant amount to travel as much as I'd like, but I live very comfortably. I live very, very well compared to some of my family members and certainly better than billions of people in the world.
