Under the Mental Health Task Force unit, a Purposeful collaboration has been initiated between LLWB and LOGOTHERAPY MENA.
A series of Logotherapy webinars/workshops are delivered to LLWB members each addressed to a sector of outreach.
And the second webinar, happened on the 24th of March on a zoom call session, under the title “MEANING AND PURPOSE DISCOVERY”, targeted people below 30 years of age.
“Life is never made unbearable by circumstances but only by lack of Meaning and Purpose”, Viktor Frankl.
The founder of logotherapy MENA, Daliya Zgheib explained during the session that meaning is unique because no one have the same meaning of life it is linked to values, however purpose is link to action. But they complete each other.
In fact, you do not create Meaning, you discover it, and Meaning is what is meant for you to do, defined by your unique value system, otherwise Purpose is an action towards meaning.
Throughout the session, Daliya mentioned that “no one knows what the future is hiding so we don’t have the right to do actions towards it”.
And she advised the attendees to focus on what they can control, during the challenges, saying: “we never know what the next day is preparing us for opportunities but we have to focus on ourselves”.
During the session, the attendees did 3 practicalities, in fact they answered questions concerning the meaning and purpose of their lives, “why you think you are here? what is life asking you at this specific time, even in all its challenges? and to list one person who have had or still have a significant positive effect on them”.
Logotherapy MENA helps people finding meaning and purpose of their lives, there is no correct or wrong answer, but there is the importance of saying the answer loudly without fearing anything.
In fact, we all have a set of value that help us discover our meaning of life.
And always remember, that meaning requires Movement and actions give clarity.
