Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining by Siddhi

When something bad happens, it can seem like the end of the world. This is likelier to be the case when we are emotionally involved in a high stakes situation.

Boy and his bear by Rick Hawkins

“He who has a why to live for can bear with almost any how.” Viktor Frankl, the eminent psychotherapist and holocaust survivor, was fond of quoting Nietzsche.

But those who had nothing to live for would find life meaningless and lack the strength to carry on. The following are 10 benefits of having meaning in life:
