Meaning of Life!

Meaning in life varies from person to person and couple to couple. However, the whole concept of meaning in life is shrouded with a certain degree of uncertainty and mystery, because, no matter, how much you try to extricate fulfillment, you may fail, either because you have not been able to make much of a headway in your life, or maybe you are grappling with a serious problem in your own life or relationship. In the metaphysical sense, life is not always about how you conduct your existence, but the answer may lie in the social expectation of raising a family and children.

Meaning in life is also influenced by our upbringing, personality, attitude towards Life, values we imbibe from our own family and how we choose our self-direction, and the prudence of choice that we are bound to make while we embark on our journey of life. Existential philosophers believe life is a sordid story mired with the senseless pursuit of an illusion that is never out there. Some of these philosophers, like Albert Camus, regard life as totally absurd. The perennial question that they ask is what are we doing here exactly?

No matter, how one regards life, it eventually, is the story of one's enculturation and what you want out of life.
