Humans are born with a blessing and a curse, and they know that their death one day will come, and it is inevitable. So naturally stimulates the fear of death in the whole human race. But what I have drawn from this fear is that we are not afraid of death. The real crux of this fear is entwined with living an unfulfilled life till our time finishes on this earth. Fortunately, we have found a Japanese concept that can help defy this fear. It is called IKIGAI

IKIGAI is a common term for Japanese people. For English speakers, the term means subjective well-being. It encompasses the questions related to the purpose of one's life, meaning of life, and joy and feeling alive. That's why IKIGAI can come from anywhere, maybe from your hobby, loved ones, or professional life. With my monolingual ear, IKIGAI term comes as a term given by the psychologists for healthy passion.
