When people encounter illness and suffering, they often search for meaning and purpose in their own life. The process of loving oneself and accepting the present situation can be a lonely journey, as it requires quiet moments of solitude. Love of oneself is essential because a human being who does not see him- or herself as valuable or believe in higher values can ﬁnd it hard to experience meaning.
The experience of connectedness in life may foster the human being’s notion of dignity and holiness and may therefore appear as an active force in composition of wholeness in health.
Finding meaning in life is important, so is loving oneself.
