If you think you’ll lay awake at night pining over that promotion you didn’t ask for, think again. New data says you’re more likely to regret things relating to personal relationships versus career. Those regrets relating to love and family were more intense because they threatened people’s feelings of belonging.
And of course, Cupid’s fickle arrow graced this fascinating research, too. Love regrets outweighed career regrets by more than 2 to 1, or 56 percent to 20 percent. So hug your loved ones and stop stressing about work. Strong relationships help you live longer, and more beautifully!
