To earn money, forgot family and kids
Money is important for life but it is not life. But, unfortunately, some people leave their families and friends to earn money and go abroad for it. During this process if their loved ones regrettably die or get in the accident they are not able to see them. No doubt, social media has made it easy to talk or to see them, but crave to meet up with them cannot be fulfilled with voice or video calls. You want to earn money, go for it but never ever forget your family and friends.
Your family and friends must be your first priority. You are earning for your family; so, the thing that is ascribed in the top five regrets of dying people is that they could not enjoy them and now on death bed they wish had not worked day in and day out. They could spend time with them but time has gone.
Forget their old friends
Friends are the blessing of our lord. All friends are important and valuable for our happy and beautiful life. But, the old friends are the real gems. There is saying that “Old is gold.”
On death bed, every person wishes for a meet up with his old friends because at that time he is memorizing the happy moments, which he has spent with old friends. Because of their profession and busy life, they do not give time to the friends and lose them.
Not share their personal thoughts because of fear
If a person wants to remain happy, he must keep on sharing his feelings with other persons, especially beloved ones. But most of people do not share their feelings just because of that what others will perceive from it. Don’t do this, just share your thoughts, feelings and emotions and let the other people understand you.
Share happiness, and strengthen yourself by making good relations with other people. The main motive of our soul is to serve humanity. Contribute yourself in this universe; if you don’t do this, on the death bed, this will be your regret that I could share my thoughts but I could not do.
