This is a question that has been with me for some time. Fate. How far does it rule our lives?
Me, I think Fate plays a huge role in things since I believe that God has a plan with my life. It's just that I sometimes have to make decisions that might or might not be dependent on Fate.
For example. Last night I met an awesome guy... and I think he liked me too, yet we just were never alone for long enough to exchange numbers. We can, however, ask our mutual friend for the other's number, but to me it's not that easy.
I'm right at the end of the year. After that I'm going to leave University and very possibly the country. For me, actively seeking a relationship is just a bit too complex to even think about. Part of me believes that if we are meant to be together or even date, we'll meet again.
Part of me wonders if I'm being a coward.
But that got me thinking about my books. In the Beast, the characters are quite fixed to their fates, although they get to choose if they step up or not. In the Western, they are responsible for their own fates.
Clearly, part of me obviously believes that even if Fate is there, it's my choice to accept it. And thinking about it, I do accept a lot of what Fate throws my way. It's my of knowing whether or not I'm following the Plan. I like following the Plan. It's the best one there is for my life.
But this was such a near miss. I have no idea about whether the door closed or not. So... Do I shove it a little and see what happens, or do I move past it and go on with my life? What do you guys think?
