Meaningful life and death

A meaningful life is a construct having to do with the purpose, significance, fulfillment, and satisfaction of life.While specific theories vary, there are two common aspects: a global schema to understand one’s life and the belief that life itself is meaningful. Meaning can be defined as the connection linking two presumably independent entities together a meaningful life links the biological reality of life to a symbolic interpretation or meaning .Those possessing a sense of meaning are generally found to be happier to have lower levels of negative emotions, and to have lower risk of mental illness

Death The very word strikes fear in people’s hearts. They consider death as unfathomable as it is inevitable. They are barely able to talk about it, to peer beyond the word itself and allow themselves to contemplate its true implications. This is an understandable reaction, given the fact that so many people think of life as nothing more than a state in which the human body is biologically active.
