The #1 top regret is:

I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. 


I read a lot of books on this topic. 
What do most people past the age of 60-70 regret? What would they do if they could start over? What is the meaning of life? 

So when I read that the #1 most common regret is not having the courage to live a life true to self and not the life others expect - I wanted to evaluate some things. 

To what extent do I live my life for others? When and how much is necessary? How do I identify where to draw the line so I do not have the same regret that is so common. 

Coming from a community based culture, everyone's has an expectation for you. There is a certain happiness and obligation that is placed on living up to certain external expectations.  

Happiness is usually best experienced with people. I am a big proponent of social wealth. So I want to be able to avoid the common regrets that most of us have. 

I am hoping to learn how to constantly work and balance and adjust early.
