This snippet resonates with me from a previous role in which I developed and then delivered a broad array of leadership training topics to program owners, directors, and their support personnel. The most common regret voiced by many was the desire (and courage) to express their feelings. Other regrets as cited in this piece, are case-specific but were clearly communicated by the most dedicated leaders I had come to know over the six years I had led the cohort of strong women from our industry.
Having been a volunteer patient caregiver for a faith-based hospice agency, like the author, I too had conversations with those I sat beside, and with family members whose loved one was at the end of their lives. In our field of work, particularly those in servant leadership roles where personal characteristics and qualities held by program administrators include selflessness, humility, and compassion. Program leaders tirelessly and almost without exception focus on the growth and well-being of others, and to the communities in which they belong. Self-care and renewal whenever possible, and often is my own key to a life well-lived, and in turn, one that won't be met with any regret.
Thank you for sharing such an important (yet perhaps sensitive topic to some), most particularly as we close out another year unlike any other.
A hospice chaplain friend once said that he observed the difference between those who died happy and the others is that they had forgiven and been forgiven.
