Get Over It

Have you ever heard people complaining about things in their lives. I get too little money; I do not enjoy my job; I want a new car! It may not necessarily be anything that unusual until you see it in perspective.

Victor Frankl spent years in a German concentration camp during World War 2 and In his book "Man's search for meaning" he explains how awful the conditions were and how he watched his family die. He realised there that no matter how terrible the conditions were nobody could control the way he reacted to them. He developed Logotherapy, which has the purpose of giving people meaning in their lives when they feel they have nothing to live for.

Next time you want to complain about something maybe you should ask the question is it really that bad? Remember that to get over it gives you the power.

I read "Mans search for meaning." This was a perspective altering book to say the least. "Don't ask what the meaning of life is. Life asks YOU, what is the meaning of your life. And is up to you to be responsible for yourself."
