Some questions are simply too big to tackle; it is most often the “Why” questions which are part of that larger group. Why am I…? Why did this happen? Why am I here?
It is the question for the curious child, the inquiring teenager, the fresh entrant into college. Religion, philosophy — a coherent community — once answered and satisfied such questions. In an isolating society, a loss of community, a country without a coherent identity — such questions become more pronounced.
Traumas and crisis also prompt such questions. Medical conditions which impact one’s career can further trigger the question: What is the point? What is the purpose? For, it is an “event” which queries a priority of what is important in life.
For Federal employees and U.S. Postal workers who suffer from a medical condition such that the medical condition no longer allows you to continue in your chosen career, contact an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law, and begin the administrative process of getting beyond the questions of “why” by filing for Federal Disability Retirement under FERS in order to consider a future beyond the immediacy of purpose.
