London: A palliative nurse who has counseled the dying in their last days has revealed the most common regrets people have at the end of their lives.

Among the top most common regrets of the dying has been "I wish I hadn't worked so hard."

Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years working in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives.

She recorded their dying epiphanies in a blog called Inspiration and Chai, which gathered so much attention that she put her observations into a book called The Top Five

Regrets of the Dying, reported a newspaper.

The top five regrets of the dying, as witnessed by Ware were:

1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish I had let myself be happier.
