of fate

We often wonder why things turn out to be of a certain way, why the end is not what we imagined in the beginning and the journey that we went through may not go smoothly according to what we have in mind. We look back, trying to figure out where we went wrong and how things changed, not realizing some small steps that we've taken that changes things as well. Being in denial is an easy escape. We never would want to admit what we did was wrong, and keep on pointing fingers to everyone else.

Gossip Girl season 4 episode 7 taught me a lot about fate. I almost went into tears when Chuck met Blair for truce and they finally agreed that it was no one's fault. It was fate. Its not that fate didn't want them to be together, but the circumstances and events that made them sway their paths despite their desire separated them. And its irreversible.

I can so relate to this situation, a perfect situation where everything is a dream come true, yet unchangeable occurrence made our decisions differ completely, and we find destiny in a different way, from everything we ever expected.

Who can blame if there is a change of the heart? Nor one can blame if the lust is stronger. How would you know, to tell which is which? Only time.

Fate has been playing its strings in every single soul, yet we are still subjected to abide by the religious way of seeing things, where destiny is already and has always been predetermined. Maybe what we want is not the best for us, yet at that moment it was perfect. Truth is, it is a stepping stone to what is really meant to be.

Will we ever find out? Yes. Give time :)
