Spirituality and the meaning of life
Spirituality is concerned with how we make sense of and see the meaning of our lives.
We all have our own unique spiritual needs, traditions or questions about our lives. It is not solely concerned with the rituals of specific religions or churches.
What can you do?
If you do have a specific belief system, then the traditions of your church or faith system can offer support. Talking about your beliefs and thoughts with your faith leader or friends and family might bring a lot of comfort.
For others, spirituality might involve thinking and talking about your past and the future, or carrying out personal traditions.
You might wish to think about and discuss questions such as “Why has this happened to me?” or “What happens next?” Talking about these issues can be of great help.
