However, achievement and action are not the only way of making life meaningful. Other aspects of life that enrich the meaning are experienced. Experience has value because it can compensate therapeutic demands from outside of us to achieve a success. Individuals can meet the meaning of life not only through the achievement and through experience, but also through suffering. Suffering a painful stimulate individuals to develop. The meaning of death is an individual concept of positive or negative, conscious or unconscious, or something that is impossible. When facing of death, people in general do not like, even very frightened to death. Individuals to imagine death as a very tragic event and horrible. However, humans can only be received with great fortitude, patience and courage of all forms of suffering that can not be done to stop. Acceptance with sincere and steadfast tragic things that can not be circumvented longer be able to change one's view of the previously characterized merely suffering a view which can see the meaning and lessons of suffering.

This is because the first subject is responsible and accountable to fend for themselves to finance their children that still young. While on the second and third subject lead the motivator of the death for quality in the Hereafter, because the second and third subject felt they had enough living in the world and helped by their children who have been working.
