There is always something left to attach meaning to
Your decisions are all you control. Even if everything else is taken from you, you still get to decide whether you will suffer your pain with dignity. The meaning of struggle + self-transcendence
When someone wrongs you, there's nothing you can do about it except the way in which you respond, treating them the best you can anyway. (Rationality under Uncertainty still works) And there's no true reason to get mad at them, like getting mad at a fig tree for secreting juice. ?Lack of Free Will
When it looks like suffering is the only thing ahead in this life, there is still your future self, who may look back on you thankfully for allowing him to be how he is: for how you will grow from this pain, or at least how you endured it so that he could be. Framing your current struggles as future growth
And we have such a limited view of the world that we can't even know if this "misfortune" you are facing will or won't be the thing you benefit or grow from in this life. We have no idea what's lucky or unlucky
You have a tiny amount of control over the arc of humanity, but you are lucky enough to have some. No matter how little power or influence you have, you have responsibility over your tiny web of influence people. Each challenge you face is figuring out how to best take care of this responsibility and do what is right. The opporunity in challenge
"Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual".
It is a peculiarity of man that he can only live by looking to the future—sub specie aeternitatis. And this is his salvation in the most difficult moments of his existence, although he sometimes has to force his mind to the task.
"No one has the right to do wrong, not even if wrong has been done to them".
A man who becomes conscious of the responsibility he bears toward a human being who affectionately waits for him, or to an unfinished work, will never be able to throw away his life.
