::Side track from my actual projects::
This has got me thinking about my life.
The top 5 regrets people had on their deathbeds.
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 didn’t work 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 that I had let myself be happier.

I try to life my life with no regrets, one that is true to myself and I think I did a pretty good job.
I try my best to enjoy myself, but I feel as if I've accomplished nothing, or very little.
I can make a small list of things probably only I have experience/can do that makes me unique, but that doesn't make me feel better. It actually makes me feel worst because I think of all these other unaccomplished people..
Reading that article, I feel even now,
that I have failed to have the courage to live the life true to myself,
how I stupidly worked so hard on things that didn't matter, and was how I'm not working hard enough of things that does, but I don't really 'regret it' all these mistakes that I've made, if I had the opportunity to stop myself from doing it in the past, I wouldn't because of all the valuable lessons, I got out of it (maybe not the motorcycle accident, but I learned my lesson!)
Even now, I do not have the courage to express most of my feelings, somethings it's a bit crippling, but not 'regrettable'
I've let so many of my friends fall out of touch, but I feel as there are reasons, so no regret here.
But I don't feel I keep myself from being happy, I just feel happiness is hard to come by for me..

All this, and I've only had the opportunity to live this life for 20 years.

"My life might suck/be awesome, but I'm still unsatisfied"
