I did not believe in destiny, but now that my life seems to be revoloving around problems and troublesome times, I am starting to think that I have been born under a wrong destiny!

They say that your destiny is destined from birth and no one can deviate from it. However, the manner in which the thread of life depends largely on decisions made by each of us. Every last moment is a fortune just because he is the one that tells us that we have time. Time that we have prepared everything we intended to do in this life and that we could never do more or less than we have been given. This should not concern us, not scare us, we should not be alarmed. Because if we accompany with despair, we do not have one near us, even ourselves, because desperate chase them all around us! There are rich people, as there are no poor people. There are people who do not feel that not seeing the wealth! There are people who do not live happiness and joy! Now everything is measured in money, wealth and celebrity. Once everything is measured in social status. Now everything is measured in change - wealth, status, character, loyalty to values ??or to others. Yesterday we looked good and beautiful now seems outdated, bad, outdated, and not sorry is a way of life today accepted with indulgence and justification to their own conscience. There is more, as there are no less! There are only a smile of fulfillment or sadness or pain. Let's not forget that at the end of each pain frail and alluring smile awaits hope. Therefore, do not give up because if they give up the pain and give hope. Because life is hope and pain, both governed by eternal, and the grimness destiny.

Ofcourse,everything is destined in life.One who has believe in God and follows a religion surely will believe in destiny.But to completely rely on it and give up taking challenges would not be a good thing either.As the saying goes'work as if everything depends on you and then pray as if everything depends on God' should be followed in life. Life is full of challenges,accept it,greet it,and however it may be,dont shun it or call it hard namesg.Let your belief in God be the strength to overcome obstacles in life.

Hi Grkelly, if you are talking about destiny and bad luck or problems, then it is a life time curse! Anyway, even those cultures which advocate destiny still believe in free will, and actions by individuals. The Chinese concept is that everyone is born with certain talents, and inclinations, plus opportunities and problems. However, it is up to us to hone our talents, and grab the opportunities, plus making wise choices. Even if we are born with health problems, healthy eating, and exercising will help us to reduce the health risks.

You aren't under a wrong destiny. You just need to solve the problem. It's all about the journey. You will learn so much finding the solutions. Few things worthwhile in life come easy.

Everyones life is written in a book by an angel given at your birth. If you are a good, kind, honest person he can make little changes to guide you on the right path in life. If you are bad and don't pray for help he will be unconcerned about your purpose in life and will do nothing to change your destiny. at a moment in your life he will just write in the book the thinks you do. So if you are careless so he will be. Try to pray and your life will change. take the word of a man which gone through a lot in life and only praying helped me to pass the difficult periods. I know its hard on the first few days, but you will feel better over time and your life will change in a good path.

I think there is something to be said for that theory, as it is fascinating how the lives of people - particularly "successful" people - are shaped by unplanned, unanticipated turns of events. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, for instance, has said that had he not been injured when playing for San Diego, that he probably never would have gotten a chance to play for New Orleans (which he'd always wanted to do) and win the Super Bowl. At the time of his injury, however, he felt as though it was the worst thing that could happen to him at the worst time. Another example is how Pierce Brosnan won the role of James Bond as Roger Moore's replacement, and had even done all the wardrobe fittings and photoshoots, but the Remington Steele producers renewed his contract, thereby causing him to lose the role. He later stated that when he finally did get the role of Bond, it was at a much better time for him and he gave a much better portrayal of the character than he could have when he was initially offered the chance. I could also mention several such instances in the life story of Ronald Reagan, but I don't wish to chance opening up a political debate! If you've ever heard the Garth Brooks song "Unanswered Prayers," then you'll get the picture. I have felt the same way you have for much of my life, always feeling as though I was born under the wrong destiny. I'll leave a wonderful first impression and then someone else (who is no more capable than I am) comes between myself and the people I am working with and I get shoved into the background. I don't know what that's about except that it just always seems like I am in the wrong place at the wrong time! But I do hope and pray that it is a sign of some kind of destiny and will lead to something bigger, or at least something more enjoyable and worthwhile! I don't know if everyone was born specifically to fulfill a destiny, but that does seem to be the case with a great many people. I guess finding our destiny is about playing the cards we're handed and as we move on in our lives and discover ourselves we uncover more and more pieces of the puzzle.

I think that everyone has a dedstiny. It may not always be crystal clear to our view. We don't have to see our desiny to to realie it. We only have to believe in where it will lead us and what part it will play in our future.
