I came across this line that says, what we call destiny is a lie. If two people meet and fall in love, its not because of destiny but because of what they feel and fight for. Its not destiny that allows it to happen. Its the decision of both partners. If two people break up its not because of destiny that they are not meant for each other, but its because they gave up on each other.Because they allowed the relationship to fall. Am just a bit confused. What do you think my fellow mylotters?

Yes, I do believe in destiny. I think destiny is something that is always calling you no matter what. destiny is something that is there and meant to be. I also believe some people are too lazy to ever fulfil their destiny. Yes, everything is detined. No, the individual chooses their own path by the decisions. As humans, we naturally look for ways to make sense of our lives and the events that occur. And the question of destiny is one that most people ponder at one time or another in their lives. Thanks

Also, I like to think of destiny as an irresistible inner power or energy that one is compelled to follow. Just like every living organism grows according to its own unique blueprint, there is an interior map that compels us as humans toward our destiny. Everything happens for the best. I always believed it that whatever happens, happens for the best.

I believe in destiny. Once you reach the highest peak of your life then you have your own destiny which God has given to you.Young and old they are destined to be somebody ,somehow in the future by God's will. No one can ever think, plan or predict what is his/her destiny it is by God alone and no one else can plan our destiny even by the time we came out from our mother's womb.

I believe in destiny.People are drawn into us not by accident.I believe all that's happening has a reason.And if two people are not meant to have a happy ending, its because its their destiny too maybe brought about by incompatibility or other factors. I believe the people we have in our realm now are the same people we were with in our past life and the same people too that we will be in our another life. Its kinda mysterious and complicated, but i know and i feel that this is so. (^_^)

I believe in destiny since it happened to me. My wife now is my destiny as I call it. Why,during our boyfriend/girlfriend relationship we have so many ups and down,jealousy, break-up relationship which lasted for days,and without communication for a long time. Suddenly oneday we came across with each other without any bitterness of the past bringing back love affairs we have lost before. Now we are happily married for number of years with 3kids.It is God given destiny for sure.

there is a destiny for everybody. I think when you meet someone that you don't know them, and you talking with his/her and getting to know each other deeper and deeper. That one call a journy of your destiny. if that girl/guy is your destiny,then you will in a realtionship until you die. but if not, then you have to keep finding and finding until you find your destiny. This is from my point of view only....

I do believe in destiny, it happens everyday--though we have free will I believe there is a higher power that we inclined ourselves to subconsciously and that neither of us can change it. We are all put here on earth for a purpose, and that we are instruments of it

Destiny only helps you. It does not decide for you whether you get together or not. Destiny means giving a chance for both of you to meet each other in this huge world. But if you do not fight for yourself, he will just be another passerby.

Yes, I believe that ever life is traced before it starts, in many ways, we simply choose the way we will follow, but sometimes no matter the way you follow you result is ever the same, and it is what I call destiny. Something that is always in your life but you just can't see.

Yesterday, I tried to open up a discussion like this. But I was confused because I asked myself if destiny is the right word to use or fate. I'm so confused that I end up not discussing it. I'm more confused because I searched for its meaning. Then thought of discussing is it destiny or fate ;). Anyway to answer your question, I don't believe in destiny. Because we have choices and we're free to make decisions. So when we made our decision we have to face consequences. And that consequences is our fate not destiny.

yes i believe. it starts from the time when you take birth. i think there are number of talented people all over the world but they could not be at the position where the son of a billionaire could be. they can be but it is not easy as for the son of a billionaire. so here is an example only. many times we endeavor but we dont get the deserving result and other one can get the same at lesser effort.

I do, i believe that each and everyone of us have their own destiny now whether we go for it or not depends on us. We are the ones who make or break our destiny, we choose the kind of life we deserve.People around us may assist us but the last decision still depends on us. Destiny is ever changing just like people.The only constant in this world is change ;)

hi mitchann! my answer is maybe, or sort of, or it really depends. i believe in destiny in a way that i think it was the mere reason why me and my boyfriend crossed our paths. or else we couldn't have met. but with regards of whatever happens next, was no destiny at all. it was our own choices of decisions. and that sometimes makes the most of our own destiny. and you're right when two people broke apart from each other, it was not their destiny, but because they decided to fall apart for some sort of reason on their own too. ~ anyway happy mylotting!

Well you got your free will here, so I am not sure about destiny. Maybe destiny are the circumstances that are presented to you in life and you still can make your own choice. Maybe, but I cannot speak in facts for something I do not know (nor does anyone for sure). I try to understand why people believe in destiny so I can make a decision, so I'd have to say I am open about this subject, but meanwhile I am trying to do the best with what I have and make the best out of every situation that is out there...

hi there fellow. I think it depends on the person if he'll believe destiny or not. If he believes destiny then he'll come up with different reasons for the events that happened in his life. Same with someone who doesn't believe in destiny.

hi frontvision101 I guess what you are trying to point out is that we have our own perceptions to believe on. thanks for allowing us to hear your opinion.

I totally agree with you mitchann. I have a bestfriend and she is my girlfriend. We were classmates in college from first year to untill we graduated. It is not destiny that made us together but it is just that we decided to be together despite our differences in life. A relationship is not controlled by destiny but to the partners who decided to be together. On the other hand if they break, it is because they decided to separate ways and it is not that they are not destined together. It is clearly a matter of choice.
