- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
- I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
- I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
- I wish that I had let myself be happier.
Just to clarify, #2 has nothing to do with the gym. One of my regrets looks like the opposite of #2: I wish I had started working hard in the gym at a younger age; it’s so damn much fun (#5).
