Survivor’s Diaries: Chapter 15

Chapter 15: Destiny

I spend a lot of time thinking about destiny.

I try not to. But sometimes I just can’t help myself.

I ponder whether our paths are chosen for us, or whether we do indeed chart our own courses, as we like to believe.

If you want to know the truth, I like to believe our fates are decided for us the moment we enter into this world.

Like a kind of prophecy.

That there is nothing at all we can do about them. That our choices don’t matter, and that we can’t change them. That somehow, regardless of our decisions, we would still just eerily find ourselves on the same paths, in the same places, at the same times.

Because if that’s true?

Then we’re exactly where we’re supposed to be.
