I'll just say that I usually hate the ol' "look at how bad other folks have it before whinin' 'bout yer own problems" canard. I really do. I am not them! Their problems might be cake for me to deal with, no matter how brutal they are for them.
This is one example that slips through that argument for me.
From a website called Paul's Tips.
I've just finished reading Viktor Frankl's “Man’s Search for Meaning”, which I think is a very interesting book. Frankl is a neurologist and psychiatrist who has developed a theory called Logotherapy.
The three core ideas of his theory are that life has meaning even under the worst imaginable circumstances; our core drive as humans is our search for meaning; and that we all have the freedom to discover what has meaning for us.
Frankl is a Jew who survived a number of years in a Nazi concentration camp. He provides graphic descriptions of the horrors of being a prisoner in these camps. Most people have a pretty good idea of what occurred during the Holocaust, so I’m not going to go into details of these descriptions. I will say, however, that such a personal view did help me to understand these events better.
[Read it. It's worth it.]
