Fate is defined as the supposed force, principle, or power that predetermines events. I, myself, am not a believer of fate. I don't think that there is some greater being or greater force that makes incidents happen to people. I believe that events occur because someone or something makes them occur. For instance, one is driving their car down the road when a deer jumps in front of the car. Consequentially, the car hits the deer causing quite a bit of damage to the car. How can one be sure that this is fate? For that matter, how can one be sure that there is even such a force that is powerful enough to change the course of one's life? This could have merely been a coincidence. Why would some "greater force"ÃÂ make a person crash their car? There would be no good reason for such an event to happen.
Therefore, it would have to be a coincidence.
In conclusion, I would like to say that I believe that there is no such thing as fate. I think that life is just full of coincidences. Also, I believe the world "happens"ÃÂ as a person lives and how those two interact is the "story"ÃÂ of that person's life. In other words, how a person and the world coincide is life. There is no "book"ÃÂ already written when one is born that they have to live up to. In my opinion, figuratively speaking, when one is born, they are given paint and a brush and the picture they paint is their life. Basically, my point is that a person's life is that of their own, they can do with it what they want and nobody has control over it except the person that that life belongs to.
