Finding Meaning After Loss

An Article by Michelle Ann Collins

When our lives have changed in innumerable ways because of our lost loved ones, just getting through each day is challenging enough. Do we really need to take it further? And how can we find meaning in death, even a heroic one? According to Victor Frankl, who wrote Man's Search For Meaning, having meaning in your life is fundamental to persevering through challenging times. Frankl survived a Nazi concentration camp, and his work about this experience is one of the most extreme examples of the lifesaving power of meaning. He attributes his survival partly to his commitment to finishing the manuscript he was working on. The purpose his project provided and his motivation to finish it kept him going through horrific experiences. HOW DOES MEANING-MAKING HELP US, AS GRIEVERS, TO SURVIVE & THRIVE AFTER LOSS?
