Destiny. It’s an attention-grabbing, and for me in the intervening time an all-consuming, idea. Destiny is outlined as “The trigger, drive, precept, or divine will that predetermines occasions.” One other means to think about it’s future, the definition of which is “the mounted order of issues; invincible necessity.” I like that wording fairly a bit “invincible necessity” one thing that regardless of how exhausting you attempt to struggle it’s going to at all times win will at all times conquer your will.
My Mom and I had been discussing individuals we knew who appeared to need one thing so badly ,and in our estimation deserved to get what they wished, however who by no means did. They by no means realized a dream they labored for tirelessly, they by no means received that promotion, had a child, discovered real love, found a brand new aspect, or turned a rocket scientist. Why? Why, in the event that they deserved it, in the event that they labored with every part they’d at it, didn’t they obtain what they wished? Destiny. Future. The very best we may provide you with is that possibly they weren’t meant for these issues. It’s a disgrace however what will be carried out about it? Nothing. Nothing will be carried out to vary it.
So, I’m realizing that, whereas what I would like could appear pedestrian in comparison with the issues I listed above, it doesn’t make me any extra fated to obtain them. Simply because what I would like is smaller doesn’t imply I mechanically get it. Not if “it wasn’t meant to be”. So, whereas some individuals might name it destiny or destiny- as a type of individuals who simply “wasn’t meant to” -I’ve to say it feels fairly a bit extra like doom.
