Do you believe in fate Or as others call it destiny….is it possible that some people have preordained fates or does one have the power to change there destiny??

how about the saying “There are no Accidents in life, what’s meant to be will be regardless if its positive or negative,”

Have there been incidents in your life that has led you to believe that FATE is real, or that what’s meant to be will be??

I don't believe in fate or destiny per se, but I don't agree that time is linear, either. So, by this view, the past, present and future have already happened and are all happening right now. Predestination could easily be tied into that - but I completely believe that we are subject to our own free will and our individual choices determine our outcomes - that they may not be happening in a linear fashion does not discount the act of choice at the time that it is happening.

We all make choices, however I do believe that everyone follows a path that is somewhat pre-determined... and the only reason I know that, is b/c I have dreams that come true, sometimes years and years after the fact... They are my dejavu moments... The people in them can be people I've not even met yet, doing things I've never done before, and the minute that situation happens in real life I remember "hey I dreamed that" So, while I'd like to not believe in fate or destiny, that every choice is unique, my dreams have always told me otherwise...

I believe everything happens for a reason. Whether it's a reason caused by what you've done for it to happen or whether it was something that was 'supposed' to happen. I do think you have the power to change your outcome. Hope that answers the question. I'm tired. Cleaned the living room top to bottom, including mopping each section of the floor 4 times (it's a huge floor).

I believe certain things are preordained to happen and certain people are preordained to pass through our lives. But we always have the choice in what to do about those things.
For example, for someone who believes in love at first sight. I believe that person is placed in your path for a reason, but you can choose to talk to them and pursue something with them, or you can choose not to.
Or for someone who sees a friend again after many years of no contact. You can choose to continue that contact, and maybe something important will come of it, or you can choose not to.
I think a lot is coincidence, you just happen to meet someone or something just happens. But I firmly believe that there are certain things that are placed in our paths.

I don't believe in fate. You make your choices in life and you deal with the consequences. Other people's choices can impact on your life also but that doesn't mean it was meant to be, I think we try to analyse the things that happen in our lives and sometimes it just makes more sense to blame fate or destiny.
