Is it possible that one can be fated to be with someone, or fated to have something good happen to them? I've always wondered about this and what others think about it. So tell me, do you believe in fate? Why or why not?

Some people would say it's a fate when they faced some thing was unfair or the failures in their works or lives.I also did this before.When i failured,i just thought that was my fate,so i accepted it silently and i accepted the status quo and to maintain it,but this made mefar from the man who learned from their failures and weaks,now i find the answer out,that is the only way to change my own life is to learn from failures and mistakes,and to work hard and take more time and energy to learn more useful knowledge,my fate is in my own hands.

I know this does not make much sense, but here goes... I believe in fate, but I also believe that what you do with fate changes fate... Does that even make sense? Say Fate brings you to a coffee house, and fate has brought your soul mate there as well! You get a phone call and drop your phone, when you bend over to pick it up the person fated to be with you walks right on by..... Was it fate or did you change fate? OK I thought I had it all straight in my head, and here it just looks like a mess.... Sorry I couldn't help like I thought I could!

I don't know as I believe in fate in the sense that something is destined to happened to us no matter what. I believe that to some extent, we make our own fate through our actions, personalities, and who we are.

I believe in fate as in God has a plan for us all along. "All things work together for good to those who love God. And to those who are called according to His purpose". -Romans 8:28 Every detail in our lives happened for a purpose. We must not expect that if we are in God's side everything will turn out right. But one thing that you should never forget, if you with God's side, he can make thing out of your mistakes. I am too experience things that are bad, but as my faith and in God grows, I live in the hope of everything will turn out right... and it did.

I think it's pretty sad that a lot of people think that their destinies are pre-determined. Every second of every day we have choices. These profoundly affect our own futures. We affect other people as well as ourselves with our choices. We can change whatever road we're on at any time. Thinking that destiny is already writen for us gives us excuses for the shortcomings we might chose to take. Blamers love this philosophy. "It's not my fault". "I have no control over my life". "My situation is a result of whatever". It's been said that "in nature there are no rewards or punishments, only consequences".

I do believe in fate. Years ago when I first met my husband he wasn't even supposed to be stationed at the base I was stationed at. He went to the base that was across the mountain. They told him his orders were changed and he was sent to the base that I was at. I met him while with his room mate and he swung into the base exchange parking lot. That is the first time I met him and knew that I had met my mate before I even went out with him. If he had not been stationed at the base I was at we would have never met.
