That damn thing we call fate is a fickle mistress. She stomps, slaps, and crushes our dreams. Unfortunately there is nothing we pea brained humans can do about it. When we are born, fate already has everything lined up for us. Most of it she uses to misdirect us and give us hope. Then when we are least expecting, BAM! She hits us with “Sorry, that’s not in the cards for you”.
I believe fate waits for us to get high on hope before deciding to force us to our knees and beg for the humiliation, horror, and stress to stop. Then she lets us up to a crawl and forces us to stay their with no way out. We crawl through our lives with little hope; it rises a bit before being crushed moreso than before.
There is only one decision that fate lets us make, and even then it is a very small and insignificant choice.
We eventually get to a deciding point where we can accept where we are and live life to the fullest. Which is where we try to get to, and is probably the best choice in terms of mental health. Most people fall into this category. Which is what keeps us humans from ever getting out of fates control.
Then there is the second option. This choice is to live life on your knees hating everyone and everything that you come in contact with. There are quite a few people in the category also. This is probably the worst decision you could make. Fate gets most of her power here. These unlucky few live life waiting, just waiting for their demise. They know this is the only way out. Then one day while they are walking across 87th and Truman BOOM! they get hit by a bus and die instantly. When they wake up( yes wake up, in hell of course) fate is standing over them laughing because now they are stuck in a fate worse than humanity. They are in Hell, with eternal pain and suffering.
Finally there is “MY” option. I refuse to ever let fate keep me down because I know I will just get back up. It does not matter how hard she hits or how difficult things may be come. I will get back up stronger than before knowing that I, and I alone create fate and there is nothing that fickle mistress can do to change that.
Where do you stand? Let me know in the comments.
