deathbed regrets: analyze for sociology

29 Jul

These are interesting and I think it will be fun to ask students to read through this and pick out 3 sociological factors at play. For example, the first one: ” I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me” may have a lot to do with peer, family, or media socialization and notions of success.
Also, #3, “I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings” may come more from men since they are socialized to suppress non-aggressive emotion.
You could probably come up with some better ones…
This comes from a website, “The Next Web:
Technology news, business and culture” and looks like it is geared toward men.
