Top Five Regrets of the Dying

From the Guardian

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."What's your greatest regret so far, and what will you set out to achieve or change before you die?From the Guardian Nick Jacobs

Delicateness of relationships

Delicateness of relationshipsRelationships are fragileOnce broken --broken forever

Relationships should be based on trustTrust gone--Relationship doneLike a bookonce closed never to be opened again.

Instead I close my eyes to the world And dream of love and remember pain it coursed. Foresee tests of all kind. Test one can’t imagine

Relationship; biggest test of all

Addicts of sensation

Have people learned from other people’s suffering Why do we need to see disturbing pictures?each and every day--over and over again we are confronted with horrific scenes on TV, social media and mass media more and more confronted with horrendous pictures day in day out Worse; it seems that we are drawn to itLike moths to the flames We watch it, but it seems that…Most of us are not able to grasp ghastly reality of what we are spectating In the Middle Ages People went to see the stoning death of other peopleThey pitied the victims and cried all out in terrorInwardly they were drawn to the sensation, curious they where And felt high adrenaline levels in their veinsIt seems that people need a daily dose of sensationSame time growing mentally numb of what they seeHave they really learned from other people’s suffering? Are we the addicts of sensation? Amsterdam street poet Nick Jacobs

Keesje [Little Chris] Brijde was shot for stealing a few coals

Translated from " Oud Amsterdammer [old Amsterdam Inhabitant] Keesje [little Chris] Brijde was a boy of 13 when he went in December1944 to steal coal for him and the rest of the large family during the war to keep the warm. Keesje was thereby discovered and pay for it with death. Extract from "de oud Amsterdammer Nick Jacobs

Equally poignant is the story of the Austrian family Mayer who for months has been in hiding behind a house in the same block as the annex where the Frank family Sat. The Mayer family was in fact wanted by the Germans. The story may not be as dramatic as that of Anne Frank and her family (if only because all family members have survived), but nevertheless it is a story that must be told. Speaking about Anne Frank: did you know that the Secret would be? at the end of the 50s actually demolished Also the story about the incinerator on the Diemerzeedijk is remarkable and worth reading, as the sections 'Bridge to Bridge off' (Cookies Bridge), "This will never come back" (the Cat Central), "Who knows , can say 'with a new board plate and a nice story about all singles on Ajax, which in some cases have contributed to Ajax. Even Johan Cruyff. So there is every reason to pick one of the four hundred takeaway addresses. Quickly The Old Amsterdam
