My number one priority in my life is my family. I took on my heritage from my mom and dad they are the best. They give me what I want but also teach me things in life that I will need to know like taking care of myself. My audacious brothers are really spectacular. They taught me how to ride my bike and how to throw a football. You
In the book “Man’s Search For Meaning,” Frankl introduced the meaning of life that he discovered during he suffered in concentration camp. He also mentioned that people find meaningful life by creating work, experiencing something, and by the attitude we toward unavoidable suffering. As a young people, I less advanced in life and less enlightened by experience. I can’t image how many painful memory that he had, and I don’t know in what dilemma he found the meaning of lives. Undoubtedly, Frankl noticed the value of his life, and his difficult life experience helped him know himself, and finally he overcame many difficulties. Thus, for me, I think I can find meaningful lives by achieving self-realization and experiencing more things in my life.
Culture is seen everywhere. Being raised in a Chinese/Japanese culture house hold, the culture I grew up in was always different from the one I learned from school or my peers. Since I come from a diverse background, I have always had a personal interest in learning about other cultures that differ from mine. As a nursing student, we are constantly taught about cultural competency and how to treat patients based on cultural preferences. When I found out about this Cultural Anthropology course, I did not think twice about registering for it. I was not sure what Cultural Anthropology was entirely about, but I was excited to learn more about it.
This will to meaning is the culmination of our developmental process. To cultivate an individual’s capacity to find meaning in their life is the greatest goal, and the source of mankind’s anxiety and neuroses. We all wish to find the meaning within our life, and are unfulfilled when we miss the mark. But according to Frankl, there is always meaning in life, in every single moment, from one to the next we all are capable of making a choice about ourselves, and beyond that, have a responsibility to do so. Even with the transitory nature of our existence and hopelessness in the face of certain death, there is still meaning to be found, there is still freedom to be earned.

Her goal is, that her students are engage in the lesson that she created.
It is said that all life does indeed involve suffering but it is what we make of this suffering that will determine whether or not we find meaning in our life. One must look within and around himself to create meaning in her life; one can finding meaning by creating works or doing deeds, experiencing things or encountering people, and choosing one’s attitude towards the suffering in her life. There will always be obstacles in the way to meaning—the tragic triad of pain, guilt, and death—but one must use this to fuel your drive to find meaning by maintaining tragic optimism—faith, love, and hope. Many people lead difficult lives, however,
I believe there are many factors that define culture, such as language, food, traditions from past generations, religion, and values. All of these factors have the power to influence the individuals within.
However, Viktor Frankl took it a step further and combine it with logotherapy and his own experiences with suffering. While most people struggling to find meaning in their lives aren't in as serious of a situation as a concentration camp, they are still suffering. Frankl says that "he who has a why to live for can bear almost any how" (Frankl ). He tells people that by finding a reason to get through the suffering, they may find their “pain” is not so painful. Just as prisoners who had reasons to make it to liberation day defeated their suffering. Viktor Frankl said himself “that the meaning of his life, is to help others find the meaning of their’s” (Frankl

Frankl believes that despite hardships, we must have a positive outlook on life. Throughout all of the hardships he faced, he was able to portray hope and help others who needed it. Even during the worst, Frankl was able to remain optimistic. I have noticed this trait with those surrounding me. I have witnessed people in pain and suffering who have managed to find a positive from their situation. Frankl learned how to cope with his suffering by finding a source of happiness in his life. Frankl’s happiness came through his thoughts of his wife. “I understand how a man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved” (37). Although he was separated from his wife, he was able to picture her and find pleasure. In our society, I have noticed that the people who can find happiness in their times of suffering are much stronger than those who don’t. It is important to be thankful for what we have and for the times we spent before our hardships came about. Frankl told his fellow prisoners that all the joys from the past can shine even in the darkness. While it may seem impossible, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” (J.K. Rowling). In conclusion, “Man’s Search for Meaning” is a very influential book. Not only did I learn about the life and teachings of Viktor E. Frankl, but I was able to find my own appreciation of the book and come across ideas that will help me in my life. I hope to hold onto my own personal meaning and help others find their purpose in life so I can also be an inspiration. I will always remember the quote by Viktor E. Frankl that says, "The meaning of life is to give life
In Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl, a central idea to his story is that of taking control of what happens around you. For Frankl, he used what little control he had to make the best of a horrible situation. While many of my experiences in life cannot even stand near those of Frankl, this idea is universal, and almost necessary, to achieve happiness in your life.
(Origin) When thinking about my family and our roots I identify my family’s places or origin as Germany and Ireland. A majority of my family is of German ancestry and the one exception is my grandmother and she is Irish. I identify these too places as where my family came from due to stories that I have hear from family members and to the traits that each member of my family carries. A majority of my family are all blonde hair, with blue or brown eyes which have a lot of similarities to people from Germany. My family as very few of the traits from the Irish side but the only ones the I have been told are that some people in our family freckle a lot
1. Culture is perceived as a way of thinking that influences the behaviors of a group of people.
For the past six weeks, I learned how philosophy has influenced the world globally. Learning that when human beings voice their thoughts with others, they receive a chance to change the world, especially if one person speaks one on one, one personage can change the world of one body. My belief in the power of language is strengthened by philosophy. This philosophy course has encouraged me to share my opinions that are not influenced by other peers or older adults, but to deeply reflect and research my beliefs and opinions. Looking at how philosophy has shaped the United States, I grant my thankfulness towards the Constitution, and the democracy and freedom we now have, compared to other countries.
