You really are a sociopath aren't you  Undecided
Seriously. The fact that he believes true happiness only comes from dominating others tells us a helluva lot more about him than it does the rest of humanity.

Probably more useful info and life changing than anything posted before

1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

"This was the most common regret of all. When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it."

2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

"This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children's youth and their partner's companionship. Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from an older generation, many of the female patients had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence."

3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.

"Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence and never became who they were truly capable of becoming. Many developed illnesses relating to the bitterness and resentment they carried as a result."

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

"Often they would not truly realise the full benefits of old friends until their dying weeks and it was not always possible to track them down. Many had become so caught up in their own lives that they had let golden friendships slip by over the years. There were many deep regrets about not giving friendships the time and effort that they deserved. Everyone misses their friends when they are dying."

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

"This is a surprisingly common one. Many did not realise until the end that happiness is a choice. They had stayed stuck in old patterns and habits. The so-called 'comfort' of familiarity overflowed into their emotions, as well as their physical lives. Fear of change had them pretending to others, and to their selves, that they were content, when deep within, they longed to laugh properly and have silliness in their life again."

I'm not sure how much choice he have over the "worked too hard" regret. Life is fucking expensive. I guess some people choose to work extra, beyond what is necessary. That would make sense.

The work thing is a huge one, in a 100 (maybe even in 40) years people are going to laugh at how insane we were working 40+ hour weeks while they chill out and robots do all the work.


Bertrand Russell was saying exactly the same thing 50 years ago.

I guarantee you we will still be working long hours.

It depends on what the meaning of "is" is.

Had they actually done all of those things then they would be stating the exact opposite. The human condition of never being satisfied remains till death....nothing to see here folks.

Ok I'll correct my statement: "living a decent life is fucking expensive."

If I wanted to work very little and have nothing and barely provide for my family,  there's about 20 countries in Africa I would move to. I want more out of life for myself and my loved ones though, but that's just me.

I imagine the number one regret would have been not writing Beethoven's 9th symphony.  Oh well.

Most people die sick...The lucky ones just drop dead without seeing it coming...I'd imagine that most peoples dying wish would be to have taken better care of themselves...

This fukcing idiot here can say all the things listed above but his number one regret will be what I posted

Waking up is possible if ur tired of the dream....

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier

This one is probably the truest of them all; could be summarized that way too: As hapiness is directly linked to the ability to dominate, control others, I wish I had dominated, controlled more people instead of submiting to too many of them.

Power comes along with a price as well and I doubt every man truly desires it. Some people are naturally content (betas) taking orders and being mindless sheep not questioning authority at all. Perhaps just as they're about to die...

And this "happiness" thing may not even exist but I keep hearing about it. There's ups and downs in life no matter who you are and what you have or don't have.

My life has been spectacular for most of the last 69 years I have been around. I take life one day at a time and try to make each day the best day of my life. I have a positive attitude most of the time. I have dreams and future goals, but I never let them stand in the way of enjoying the moment.

I have no regrets. Every decision I made and everything that has randomly happened in my life is right and amazing. I am good to go, whenever that time comes.

I see. I guess this crap runs in cycles. Seems like today there are a lot of folks who have nothing better to offer then to make homophobic comments about me. Why what I love or do not love is of any interest to anyone is beyond me. Perhaps you're horny and hoping for a blowjob....well keep hoping, you don't interest me.

Maybe it is you who loves the "cawk" Che. I have been happily married to the same woman who is the mother of my children for nearly 49 years. Can you say the same thing?

No meltdown....but really, some people really need to grow up, you included.

I think I would regret NOT ever having done sauce. Which is why when i feel I'm ready - probably in year or two - I'm gonna take it to that next level.

mmmh...  aint going to happen before a lot of people die. There will be 99% of slaves serving 1% of owners for still a long time. And in the end the 1% will get rid of the 99% and replace them with machines. But before they can replace humans with machine, there s a looooong way to go.
