What is the point in life? 


Hi There,  

You are very welcome to Ask Alex.  

It sounds like you are having a hard time thinking about your life and the reason for being alive. Have you been feeling like this for long? We are very sorry to hear that seeing a point to life has become difficult for you and would like to remind you that you have the right to be happy and to have hope in your future.  

Everybody finds their point in life in different things or ways, can you think of a time in your life when you didn’t feel like this or a time when you felt like your life had purpose? What was your life like at this time, is your life different now?  

Some people find purpose in helping others or giving back, some like to be creative, and others find purpose when they are connected with family and friends. You have been very brave reaching out to Ask Alex, is reaching out to a friend, family member or someone you trust something you might try?   

We have some articles that may be helpful for you on our website: ; ; .

Take care of yourself,
