Ask Dr. Christina: My Integrity and Self-Worth Are Being Compromised by My Health Problems

QUESTION: I'm a 92-year old male who used to be worth something. I don’t feel like I have any more purpose in life. I no longer feel like a man. I know there is no answer; just the frustration of getting old, and death does not seem to be near. I was using my computer and I found your site. I decided to say to you that I am lost as to why I'm even here now in the hopes you could help me understand all of this.

Mixed Messages

Life itself is a struggle with everyday living—so is learning how to live. We are born. Then immediately we are encouraged to grow through the nourishment of food but also through the life experiences we have and the knowledge that we receive in each moment of our lives. We are constantly being cheered on by everyone around us to exceed their expectations. We are praised when we finally accomplish each goal, no matter how small or large.
