Do you believe in coincidences?

Or do you believe things in your life happen for a reason? Not so much that it was/is destiny though.

I definetly think things happen for a reason and I think if we changed one thing in our past then we would be changing what we now have. I think even though my life when I was younger was not all that great I wouldn't change it as it has or did make me who I am today, and helped me get where I am. There are so many what ifs in life but I think what happens is suppose to, to fit into the bigger picture. I don't mean pain and suffering but I mean the choices or the paths we take all have a bearing on where our life will lead. I think even if there didn't seem like a reason at the time, where you are and all the things you have or have achived are not just coincidences they are reactions to past events which have all being leading you in that direction. Not to say we cant change our lives but we can only change things that are right there in front of us, we cant think if only and what if, we think well all the good things that I have right now wouldn't be here if that 'if only' had or hadn't happened. To take one thing back is to take everything back. The reason we are where we are today is because of yesterday. Where we will be tommorrow depends on today, but the reason for things is not always made clear until much later but I still belive ther is one. I hope this make a little bit of sense?

Hi momo, Yes I do believe in coincidences; like when I think of my husband he calls me and this happens everytime. Or when I think of one of good friends she calls me, its sooo freaky but true...

I believe in coincidences and I also believe in something in my life happen for a reason. I met my bf in an apartment we lived in. There are more than 1000 apartments near my company, but we both chose the common one.Frankly, we have quite different characters, so we should choose different places to live in. There are five houses in my floor, but I only knew him in 3 months. Then we became friends. But I think I fall in love with him at first sight, so I begun to play computer games in his house everyday. Then we loved each other. I met my former bf in our campus. I like to play table tennis, then I met him there. In the following days, I could see him at table tennis club eveyday. Then he became my bf. But he doesn't like table tennis, he goes to there every day ,because he wants to be my bf. When I become his gf, I never meet him there. In our lives, something is really coincident, and something happened for a reason. Can you understand my words? correct them ,thank you.
