I believe in destiny in the sense that presented to us are different possibilities for the future. But it is up to us which destiny we choose.

I believed in destiny, look at the blind people in the street who have lived their lifes to be blind, they were born that way and never choose to be blind, they dont like it but what can they do.that is my idea. happy posting.

yes but they choose to lived in the street forever, while they have all the time to find some jobs out there...so meaning its their choice to live forever in the street?

What about being blind is it their choice too, others who are born with a deficiency , would you choose to be them . Isnt their destiny to suffer. My brother has a sped school i used to think of that, why? just my opinion. Thanks for posting.

yes i do believe in destiny but there are many people who blame their destiny which is wrong....many a times you must have heard people saying "what a horrible husband i have got....well it was my destiny...cant do nothin about it" why do people blame their destiny when destiny itself gives you so many chances.... why do people settle for less when they can get the best from life whie life has so much to offer too..... destiny is good for everyone.... and destiny gives you many options in life.... its upto you to see these options and choose them right and make a good decision for your self so your destiny is as good as others.....

I believe that we are here for a purpose, for personal growth, but I also believe that we have free choice. If we don't learn this time I believe we come back to try again.

Before we can go a little deeper to this very nice discussion (to my friend who started this good job!) let's us first know the definition of destiny. Destiny is the inevitable or necessary fate to which a particular person or thing is destined. It is a predetermined course of events considered as something beyond human power or control. This issue has long been debated over years but until now it never ends. Because the end of it all is that what will remain is what a certain person believes in. Let's look at it this way: You have a plan. You want to become an engineer. After few years you are already an engineer. That happened because you wanted it. Let's say you wanted to become a doctor then you failed the examination to get a license, then doctor's world is not for you but still you made everything you could. Now you my fellow mylotters decide here: What happened to the two? Is it a destiny? Or is it a choice? In my own opinion destiny "does" exist. Meaning whatever happens to our lives, no matter what we do if it is meant for us then that is our destiny. In my own definition of destiny, it is the life story already written for you by God and you can no longer escape what that plan God has made for you. Even if some people will argue that "no, destiny is not real. All are results of our own decisions and choices." Then my reaction would be, we have a lot of choices and no matter which among those choices we select the result always ends to "one." That "one" result is what I refer to as our destiny. I hope I was able to make myself clear here. That's all!

well, destiny should always follow with choice....its your choice to be destined where you are in your lifestyle now...as GOD says that "DO YOUR BEST AND I WILL DO THE REST"...

Hello becnh83! I do believe in destiny because it happened to me. I do believe my husband is my destiny. We are million miles away, from Philippines to Florida. We met 3 years ago in an online dating site. I know it's my choice to marry an American man but if it is not destined to me, I know it will not happen.

A bit of both you cannot change your destiny but you can influence it along the way.If you know the bus will be packed ,catch another one ,if you think someone is upset with you avoid them, do you see what I mean. Destiny is a journey through life and maybe you cannot change it ,but you can tailor it a bit.merry christmas.

Mankind was given free will. He has the freedom to choose how he will live his life. Because of this there can be no fate or destiny. It is each individuals own choices that will govern his life.
