    I like to comfort myself

    and think that everyone in the world has a specific moment in life they were made for and only they can do it. It's great motivation. :D

    If fate caused our paths to cross I hope we enriched each others lives, even for such a short time as we became suspended in time.

    Recently I've been really struggling with being

    alone. I see all these couples and people and how much they care for each other and I kick myself because I'm not one of them. In essence, I want to be loved. I was hanging out with a friend today and towards the end of the day I told him that I really just want someone to...

    Nothing in life happens by chance. Every person we encounter has some effect on our lives. Every experience we have changes us in one way or another. A look, a smile, a word can change the way we look at life. Just as the person next to you impacts your life, you impact others in...

    So this whole mess that I have experienced this summer that destroyed me. Perhaps I am understanding it now. She broke up with me in early April and we didn't really try again until the end of May. I was upset for a day during that time and got over it. We just went back to being...

    My whole life I've always sincerely enjoyed the

    idea that everything I'll ever do in my life is supposed to happen. Fate is strange and weird and scary and unknown that it just peaks my interests to the fullest.

    I Do Believe In Fate

    I do not understand its logic or the direction it has pushed my life, but I do have at least some belief in Fate. It is a cruel ***** to me. At times it lets me see the future, usually through photographs and vivid experiences. When the girl of my dreams was flying back to Russia...

    If fate means that there's nothing you can do

    to change your future. Then I think it's definitely not real, if you look when you cross the road then you don't believe in fate, if you don't look then you do, however you will also be more likely to get run over...proof fate is not real

    But Not In The Normally Accepted Sense

    I know this will probably sound strange but hear me out. I believe certain things are fated to happen, but not necessarily who it will happen to. I believe we all have a free will and what happens to us depends on the choices we make. Not only the choices we make, but also the...

    There are moments in life you cannot change, moments you simply have to accept. Sometimes you can't change fate, but you can change your attitude. Surprisingly by changing your attitude, you thus change your fate.

    When reflecting upon my life, it seems like everything that has occurred- the good, the bad, the ugly- has all happened for a reason. It is larger than I can respectfully pay adequate service to in words. I mean it.

    about the way two humans may bump in the street on total accident, and end up starting a family years later. I may believe in silly things but it brings pure happiness to me at points, whenever I see these things happen to lovely people.
