Do you ever wonder if you made a wrong turn in life?
Maybe you went left when you were supposed to go right. It may be a simple change in your route, but what if it completely alters the rest of your drive? Instead of driving the easy and breezy scenic route, you are now on the fast track to arrive at your destination before you were meant to be there. What if the new route leads you to a completely different destination?
Is it possible to go the wrong way?
If life is predetermined by fate, is the wrong way really the right way? Maybe fate calculated that you would decide to make that left turn at the last minute … no matter what choice you make that was your chosen destiny.
Is that true? Have we determined that life is decided by fate only to make it easier when we make a wrong decision or we lose someone close to us? Is fate really just a crutch to keep us from facing the truth?
Maybe by believing in fate we are better able to cope with poor life decisions. It provides an excuse for why we ended up where we never thought we would be.
Two months ahead of schedule …
I have decided that I am about two months ahead of schedule. Since I continue to drive at such a fast and reckless pace in my life, I always arrive at my intended destination two months too soon. As a result, my mind is not mature enough to handle the situations and I am doomed to fail at everything for all eternity. Or, am I?
Maybe I only made one wrong turn in life. Maybe if I can find where and when I made the wrong turn, I can quickly steer myself onto the right path. That sounds wonderful, but I am stuck on the where and when part?
I flunked philosophy …
Until humans cease to exist, we will always argue over whether life is predetermined by fate or human will. Without a proper education in philosophy, I will have to save the remaining portion of this discussion for a later date.
