Chilling Last Words Uttered Right On Loved Ones' Death Beds

Have you ever wondered when your last moments are finally here and you're sitting on your death bed, how you will truly feel? The hope is taht by the time you get there, you no longer have any regrets. You hope that you've taken the right risks, you've made your mark, you've gone to the places you wished to see, you gave your time and energy to the right people and you're left with beautiful memories of it all.

Maybe that will be the case and maybe not, but let the last words of these loved ones serve as a reminder to you that life is short and that the realizations you make on your death bed are the ones that really matter.

Love Prevails Even In The Last Breath

" We were all gathered in his hospital bed, holding hands and crying and anticipating my grandpa's last breath. My grandmother touches his hand and says, softly, lovingly, 'It's okay, baby, you can go.' My grandfather stops breathing.

We're all crying our eyes out. My uncle hugs my grandmother and says, 'Well, Sissy, you were the only one he ever listened to.' My grandfather took one more big, rattling breath in protest. The entire family cracked up laughing because he was well-known for always having to get the last word in. Literally right to the end." -AlexPenname

It's Okay To Cry

There is something comforting and equally haunting about being able to grieve the loss of someone we love while still in their arms. It's a form of acceptance of what's coming while still holding on to them as tight as we can.

A Chilling Prediction

"At the hospital, my grandfather told me that when I would be on my death bed someday, I would not regret the mistakes I made or the times I looked foolish. I would regret the things I never tried and the missed opportunities. I was 16.

I took his advice to heart. Good thing I did because my cancer has progressed beyond what known science can do and having no regrets makes this much more bearable."- Some_french_canadian / Reddit

Waiting By The Roses In The Next Life

"Worked as a career for elderly people. One lady was 92, had been married for 70 years to her husband who passed away 1 week before. He told her he'd 'wait by their tree with the roses for her because she was scared to die.

When it came to be her turn, she woke up for the first time in days, opened her eyes, and said 'I knew you'd be there waiting' and passed away. Just shows that some people are made to be together." - kimmil23

Love doesn't have to end in this life. It's the most powerful gift the universe has given us so why not take it with us when we part?

"Irma?"

"My grandpa had Alzheimer's. I don't think he could speak for the last month of his life. I was visiting him in the nursing home. He looked up at me with the most love and happiness I had ever seen on his face and said, 'Irma?'

Irma was his first wife who committed suicide before he ever met my grandmother. It broke my heart that he didn't know me, but I was thankful he had forgotten what happened to her." - roseangel663 / Reddit

"You Will Always Be My Favorite Memory"

"My father passed after a long battle with cancer when I was 15. His last words to me were: 'You will always be my favorite memory'. The cancer was affecting his brain at that point, so it was one of the only lucid-ish things he said to me that day. Got it tattooed to me the day I turned 18." - deleted / Reddit

Let this be a reminder that when we're on our death beds, it's not the material possessions we've accumulated that will matter, and we won't be able to take our bank accounts with us. In those final moments, it's the memories that we will cherish the most, along with the people we created them with. It's also our memory that we leave behind.

The Four Facial Traits That Make The Most Attractive People

Researchers keep on trying to unlock the million-dollar question: what makes a person the most beautiful? The media keeps on changing the women they show as most beautiful and we keep on changing our appearance and fashion in an attempt to keep up. But the question is, do we actually ever actually "feel" beautiful?"

Does it truly come down to a science, where certain traits deem a person most attractive or is beauty relative like they say? Let's find out!

The More Symmetry The Better

​Many experimental studies have shown that men and women both prefer faces that are more symmetrical. They even came up with ratios and masks that can measure the level of symmetry in a face, and by extension its beauty. Even monkeys have been noticed gazing longer at symmetrical faces.

But why? Well, science doesn't seem to have gotten that far. It could have something to do with evolution and our brains tricking themselves into thinking that a symmetrical face must be a sign of good health. Maybe we associate good genes with the more successful development of a facial structure.

Having "Babyface" Features

​The idea of the fountain of youth didn't come out of anywhere. There is a belief that people are at their most beautiful in the prime of their youth, where they've grown enough to have adult features, but haven't experienced enough to lose their innocence and be affected by the environment.

From this idea, came the "baby face", where large eyes, long lashes, a cute little nose, a small chin, plump lips, and rosy cheeks are desirable. These traits can either describe a baby or a supermodel but the idea is that they reflect feelings of warmth, trust and won't argue back.

The More Average, The More Relatable

People are actually attracted to faces that appear distinctly average. Yes, the more you look like the general population, the more attractive you can come off, which just seems ironic.

The reason some studies made this conclusion, is that teh more average a face is, the more they likely are to be a blend of genes A study, published in the journal Human Nature said that average faces might be a reflection of a more diverse set of genes, which we might subconsciously consider as stronger in fighting off illnesses.

Something About Getting Older

Maybe women seem more attractive with baby faces but forget about youth when it comes to women's attraction to men. Women might actually end up being more attracted to men who look older according to a study.

This idea is still evolving and has something to do with women finally having a place in the workforce. The more financially independent they become, the more they like older guys, according to the study. They even named this the "George Clooney Effect" which showed women that the more patient they are, the better their chances at finding a man has more status and resources due to being older.

Familiar Faces Per Genetics

Ask yourself how you feel when you meet someone who looks like someone else you love? You probably automatically take a liking to them just because they seem familiar, even if you've truly never met them before. You might even just trust them right away. In the same way, the more familiar a person might feel, the more we could be attracted to them.

Another study found that the faces we are attracted to are heavily influenced by our personal experiences in life, and probably nothing more. This theory says it's not because of genetics as even twins couldn't agree on who they found attractive. It just depends on who you meet and look at throughout your life and the experiences you associate with them.

Basically You Can't Win

Well, it turns out, even when you try to with science, you really can't define beauty. Some people are attracted to babyfaces, while some can't help but be drawn to older ones. Some people's brains attach symmetry with good health while others just want an average-looking face to continue their genes. So the message is, beauty is relative after all. I am beautiful and you are beautiful and everyone will be most attractive to someone.

Rather than focus on looks, focus on the person on the inside. You're here for a reason. This is your sign to get to know yourself better and unleash your potential.
