Existentual … actually it’s existential.

I am really struggling to say this word correctly. I had to say it out loud about 9 times while I was in the shower and still I don’t think I’ve mastered it. Let alone not even really knowing how to spell it or what it means. So one of today’s little missions … learn how to spell it, say it and know what it means.

Quick Google search proved I had originally spelt it wrong. With that cleared up, what does it mean?

“existential – relating to existence.
concerned with existentialism.
(of a proposition) affirming or implying the existence of a thing”.

“existential. The definition of existential is something related to existence. A philosophy designed to understand and consider existence and the meaning of existence is an example of something that would be described as existential”.

What is the meaning of existence? How am I going to use the word existential in a meaningful sentence today?

I think I am having an existential crisis.
