We all go through periods when life seems to lose its meaning.  Memories of the past, painful events in the present and worries about the future can all make it difficult to cope with everyday life.  Sometimes people are lonely, anxious or depressed, worried about their relationships, their marriage or family life, or they may be suffering following bereavement, divorce or separation.  Some may want to learn to relate more easily to others or may be looking for more meaning in life.
