Despair = Suffering — Meaning.

Meaning gives us purpose. It gives us hope. It gives us tomorrow.

“It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life — daily and hourly. Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and right conduct.” — Viktor Frankl

You control your destiny. You control your tomorrows. You control who you become.

Life is rough. It’s hard. You are going to suffer.

We all do.

But what separates the hopeless from the hopeful, is meaning.

Why are you living?

What are you living for? What makes you get up in the morning? What keeps you on the journey? The journey that drops you into the deep dark ravine of the unknown and forces you to climb up the mountain into the light.

Why are you living? What is your purpose?

Only you can answer that.

Choose living. Not despair.

Make your suffering worthwhile.
