What Is The Meaning Of Life?

What Is The Meaning Of Life?

What’s the meaning of life? Why are you here? How do you find meaning or your purpose in life? What is the significance or value of life? What’s meaningful in life? What is the reason to live? These are questions that I’m sure we’ve all asked ourselves at least once at one point in our lives. They are also questions that the greatest philosophers and writers have tried to answer and explain for years.

For instance, the famous Austrian philosopher and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl defined the meaning of life as, “For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day, and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.”

And the famous Russian writer Leo Tolstoy defined the meaning of life as, “The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity.”

What’s the purpose of life? and Where do we find meaning in life” – are questions that are difficult to answer because the purpose and meaning of life are different for each and every one of us. For example, some believe that our purpose in life is to love and serve God because He created us and loves us. Others find meaning in the love of a family. You can also find meaning in the work you do. And you might also believe that contributing to your community is what gives your life the most meaning.

Wherever you find meaning and purpose in your life, it appears that it’s up to you to decide what’s most valuable in life and what gives your life the most meaning. 

In what follows, we’ve presented a list of some of the most impactful experiences in life you can find meaning in.
