It was inevitable for me to find Japanese Purpose in Life Test (PIL Test) because I was seeking meaningful job and life after I had lost meaning in working for private companies. Triggered by use of the test, I started learning Logotherapy.
Even though living a rich and convenient life, men often feel existential emptiness unless having clear purpose of life. They are prone to spend bored hours without purpose, getting frustrated and anxious vaguely.
One who has been making efforts for self-actualization may acquire fortune and social status. But, as long as borrowing value sense from others, she/he cannot live a meaningful life, blaming society or others for her/his unfavorable life.
Frankl warned modern humans of existential emptiness. He told that it’s up to the individual whether she/he can live a meaningful life under given circumstances. Making good use of my experiences, I will share Logotherapy widely with others to prevent them from existential emptiness.
I am serving as School Counselor at elementary and junior high schools and Employment Supporter for persons with disabilities.
