Do you think you won't have any regrets about life when on your deathbed?

I've just seen a really interesting foreign movie. It was made in Russia.It was about an old man on his deathbed looking back on his life in flashback. Sounds a bit depressing? Not at all! The man had had a very exciting life. He enjoyed his life again reviving old times in his deathbed,as he lived an noble and honest life.He didn't have any regrets about himself.I really admire him. How many of us can really don't have any regrets when our time comes?

I have a regret i was late proposing to my girl and the result she married other person. My only regret would be that in my entire life. Nothing more than that i should still see what is stored in my future before regreting much. Good discussion bro

im not sure about that... we live our lives and shouldn't ever have any regrets because we can't change what happened anyways.

the only things maybe that i have regrets in life is that about my family, i want them to experience abundant life not luxurious but abundant of spiritual aspects. i want them to experience peace in their mind which they have not experience until now. hope i can help them to have peace and live more spiritually.

I truly doubt that there are very many people that won't have some type of regrets while on their deathbed. I know that I certainly will. I don't have to be on my deathbed to have regrets, I have them now about certain decisions I have made in the past.

Sounds like a similar premise to "Citizen Kane",this Movie.. I'm not dwelling on looking back on my life and what went wrong,or could have been done better-What's past is done and gone,now and at the end of Your personal time.Carpe Diem..I'd just like to have the luxury of being able to feel regret when the time comes-There are car Smashes,plane Crashes,and Natural Disasters happening while we discuss this-many of these victims maybe didn't get the chance for a last wallow in their coulda,woulda,shoulda list..

Well, I really can't tell right now because life goes on and a lot of things can happen in our life but I wish that I will not have any regrets. Cheers!

I have regrets now that I can never fix because the people they involve have already passed from this world. For the most part though I am proud of my life and I am proud of the way we live it. We are living our dreams. We are honest people who help those we can when we can. I may have a few regrets but they are few. For the most part I think I will be able to look back on my life with pride.

It's hard not to have any regrets.. Different ple hold different purposes in life.. And our purposes and dreamz changes with our age.. Things we do as a teenager may be fulfiling at that time, but as we grow older, we might regret why we did that.. And things we din do when we were young, due to being not daring or courageous enough, and when we grow old, even though we dare to do it, but the chance is not there anymore.. So, regrets are bound to happen in life..

i think i will have a few... i guess it is still too early for me to say if i will be having regrets. i need a few more years in my life and a few more things done before i can say if i have lived the way i should want it...

Well I have regrets now. There are so many things I wish I had handled differently. The most important thing is that I wish I had reached out to people more and spent more time with family and friends. I wish I had been kinder and more understanding to others. Of course I can change the way I react now but there has been several loved ones I have lost and there is no way to go back and change the time I had with them.

I don't think I will have any regrets. I have had a great life, a long and happy life. If any regrets at all, not paying more attention to my parents. I was a very selfish person in my 30's. And I would have liked to have rescued more animals. Too bad we can't start our lives knowing what we know at the end of our lives. I too, would like to know the name of that movie. Sounds really good.

If I were to change things in my life now, then I would have no regrets on my deathbed. But if I was to find myself on my deathbed right now then I guess I would have an awful lot of regrets. I have been thinking about things in my life an awful lot recently and doing a lot of thinking and have come to realize that there are a lot of things that I need to change and a lot of things that I need to do.

one be one interesting movie , Well Literally speaking i don't think we can live that perfect life were we have no regrets When the day finally arrives for Once in life we do things we never wanted to and never do thing which we always wanted to. Life is a compromise ,we always cannot be selfish and just live for ourself , somethings we got to compromise for some one else and do those things which we never liked ,so don't thing we can have the perfect ending.

I don't need to be on my deathbed to have regrets about my life. The only good thing is, is that I am still young enough to change some of that picture. But then I guess it's never to late until you are on your deathbed.
