    I agree with Cielo s synopsis. If it s not too late for a different direction in your paper, you might want to read Man s Search for Meaning , by Victor

      I agree with Cielo's synopsis. If it's not too late
      for a different direction in your paper, you might
      want to read "Man's Search for Meaning", by Victor
      Frankl, which I think you would find much closer to
      the mark.
