      If someone lacks a sense of meaning or purpose in life it could contribute to the likelihood of developing depression or anxiety. It’s the sense of meaning and purpose in life that help us to shape our goals and decision-making.
      Just like any other mental health issues, it is best to talk to a mental health professional such as a counsellor.
