    -"Hospice chaplain says many patients say they regret wasting time hating their bodies"

    -"Others regret not appreciating their bodies and how they moved before death"

    -"Of all the regrets she hears from the dying, she says these are some of the saddest"


    I have to admit, that wasn't the first thing that came to my mind and having read the article, I can sympathize with their point of view.

    Wow, it was really sad reading this.
    But it does make sense for the main regret to be ones body.
    I thought it would be long hours spent at work or something along those lines.

    I'm sure it's different in different cultures. A lot of cultures are not ashamed of nudity and sexuality.

    Exactly, we all put up walls and have reasons NOT to do something, not to love, not to have a good time, not to take a chance. It becomes what we regret at death.
