Nothing is pointless.
No experience, no encounter.
Viktor Frankl survived the Auschwitz concentration camp through a combination of luck and a meaning he found dear. For him this was finishing his life’s work on psychotherapy. (a book which would go on to sell over 10 million copies)
Viktor concluded there were three ways one could find meaning in life:
- Creating a work or art
- Experiencing something or someone (love)
- Find meaning in unavoidable suffering
Now for all of you who are:
- those facing seemingly insurmountable challenges
This applies to you.
There is one thought, which got people through hell, and can get you through any experience and come out stronger:
“The point is not what we expect from life, but rather what life expects from us” – Viktor Frankl
