Life Coach Portland, Oregon: How to Review the Meaning of Your Life


How to Review the Meaning of Your Life

There are a few books I re-read every year. If you’re interested in reviewing the meaning of your life, then you’ll want to do as I do: read Victor Frankl’s “Man’s Search For Meaning”.

This from Wikipedia:
“Viktor Frankl, M.D., Ph.D. (March 26, 1905, – September 2, 1997, Vienna) was an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist as well as a Holocaust survivor.

Frankl was the founder of logotherapy, which is a form of existential Analysis, the “Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy”. His best-selling book, Man’s Search for Meaning (published under a different title in 1959: From Death-Camp to Existentialism, and originally published in 1946 as Trotzdem Ja Zum Leben Sagen: Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager), chronicles his experiences as a concentration camp inmate which led him to discover the importance of finding meaning in all forms of existence, even the most sordid ones, and thus a reason to continue living.”

It is provocative in a deep way. He helped his fellow prisoners by sharing his insights and wrote this book for us in which he describes finding the meaning of life. In his case he sought the meaning of suffering.

You have to read the book to understand.
