Situation: John retired two years ago. He did the job he loved for his whole life and his job gave meaning to his life. Without his job now, he is feeling empty. He feels he lost his life purpose. This feeling is making him think that he wants to go back to work. Now, he is trying to find ways to do that. John lives with his wife. His two children have their own jobs and families in other cities.
Questions: Should John try to go back to work? If not, how can he give meaning to his life? Given that he did not create an alternative meaning before, how can he create a new one? What are some examples of meaningful things he can do to replace his job?
