If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would most regret not having told someone? Why haven’t you told them yet?
I’m not sure who comes to mind, other than my husband, my mom, my dog, and a couple other friends and family members. I call my mom every day and I talk to my husband during his lunch break and whenever he’s home, but I always want to talk to them more and tell them how much they mean to me, so if I couldn’t talk to them one more time before I died, I’d be super sad. Dying suddenly doesn’t allow the survivors much closer and I wouldn’t wish that from them. I’d also wish I’d be able to give my dog one more hug and walk before leaving, so who knows.
