Fate VS Chance


I used to love these choose your own destiny books in elementary school. I think I might have checked all the available versions out at my school library by the 5th grade. But really, are our fates predetermined, or do we decide them based on chance?

Personally, I believe fate is the redundant processes of breathing, sleeping, and being born, living, dying, growing, and all the parts of life that are instinctual. But we do make decisions within the paradigm of life. By chance, we have the opportunities to mold and shape our fate. A predetermined life would be close to the life of a tree.

We’re human, and the fact that we can even conceive notions of fate and chance leads me to believe we are the true masters of our fate. I could never leave my fate, or the concept of my fate in anyone’s control besides mine.
