Satisfaction is a matter of choice. We must accept the consequences that come with our words, deeds, and thoughts that we make throughout our life.
A sense of purpose does bring satisfaction to life. It is also like an insurance for psychological wellbeing when life seems to be breaking down. Victor Frankl, a psychologist and the creator of logotherapy, saw how the prisoners at the Nazi concentration camps were able to maintain their sanity for long. As long they were able to give meaning to their existence. If they didn’t, he saw how the loss of hope and dignity broke the psyches of the prisoners instead. This research shows how essential the sense of purpose is for us.
