How we can learn from the regrets of the dying

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

What does living a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you look like? Are you living it? Can you take steps to? Will you?
