Rediscover Your Meaning In Life

Posted on July 11th, 2013

In the movie It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) during which a grown man becomes convinced that he has no real purpose in life and that the world would be far better off if he had never been born. An angel gives him his wish and shows that the town in which he lived would have fallen apart and people would be miserable as they would be missing the special talents that only he was capable of doing.

During his life, he had saved his brother from drowning. His brother, in turn, had saved a lot of other people. So if he had not been around to save his brother, all those other people would have died as well. When the man wakes up from this dream and realizes how important and essential he really is.

Pretend you had never been born. Think about the positive things that might have happened to your family and friends if you had not been around to make their life be better by giving them your love, friendship and support.

When you’ve finished reflecting back on all the positive things that you have done for your family and friends, think about what kind of other contributions you wish to make to the world, to your family, and to your friends.
