Man’s search for meaning

“He who has a why can bear any how”

  • Especially true when trying to get through hard projects or times in life

When we are no longer able to change a situation we are challenged to change ourselves

  • Control what you can control.
  • If it’s something you can modify then go ahead and do it, if you can’t.. then please change yourself.

We cannot avoid suffering, but can choose to find a meaning within it and move forward.

  • During Frankl’s time, he would spend some time talking to prisoners and attempt to help them balance their mental health.
  • He purposed a concept of what if your wife died before you did? Then she would be living through this suffering.. would you want her to deal with that?
  • Suffering ceases to be suffering the moment it finds a meaning.. the prisoners found reason in their suffering and that was so that their family didn’t have to.
  • I find meaning in my ‘suffering’ by working through the hard times, struggles and added pressure so that I can set my family with the life they thrive in.

Some great words of wisdom and actions from Walkman and Lumbergh on how they have been doing things to help their family from a gratitude practice together to understanding how good life is. It felt great to share as a group and seeing our ideas and teaching being used by others in the group.
