No.. nothing’s “meant to be.” We either want it enough to make it happen, or we don’t.
Hmm….I don’t know, most of the time I feel this way, but sometimes I get the feeling something is going on. A lot of times in my life I’ll just say I’ll let it work itself out…and it does. Doesn’t that mean something? Not neccesarily, because as human beings we prescribe meaning to just about anything. I could have sworn my calculator was Satan last night and even cursed at it. We love to give meaning to that which has none.
But sometimes I feel like fate exists. Like when money that I need appears out of the blue or I am one of 2 people shoved through my study abroad program while everyone else is turned down. When it comes to people though I tend to lose faith in fate. People can choose whatever they want to do. Fathers can choose to stay or leave, Mothers can choose to nurture or abandon, and women/men can be so different, so varied, so unique that it’s funny to think 2 people ever stay together for very long.
Then there’s those with “Bad fate”. Those worry me. Those who suffer and though we suggest as you did that they “Make things happen” there is simply nothing they can do. No matter how hard they chase the woman/man of their dreams their feelings will never be reciprocated and no matter how hard they work to escape poverty, it will remain their prison from now until they perish. Then I begin to agree with you that nothing is meant to be and Everything happens for no reason at all
