    I searched but did not find a thread in the matter.

    I was wondering what people on here believe in.

    Do you believe in fate or do you believe that you choose which road in life to take and however you decide to deal with the "speedbumbs" in life is up to you?

    I'm a strict believer in that a person has control over what happens in their life. Of course unexpected things happen, but you have many ways to choose in how to deal with those events.

    Many believe only in fate.

    Which one are you, and why do you believe in what you do?

    Not at all :D

    See heres what happened. I was stationed in cali in Feb 2008, I went home on leave on July 2008 (back in TX). While I was home on leave I had a stroke, was paralyzed from my whole right side..so I took a few months of therapy.

    So there was a Marine Reserve station righ in my home town. I didn't know it existed. So since I was medically disabled I got stationed there until I was discharged (Jan 2010)

    At this point in my life is when I started to question myself if I believe in fate or I had control over my life.


    Between July 2008 and now a shit ton of things have happened, and have met many ppl. I still feel like everything that has happened since I was old enough to control my own life, (17 yrs old went to bootcamp) has happened because I made a choice.

    People make choices, and every choice has an outcome everybody knows that.

    Maybe my point of view might change when reading ya'lls responses. Maybe not. :)

    There is a belief system that says we write out our lives before we live (are born). It says that we choose our parents, our mistakes, our glories, our deaths. It is said that we also write in "exit points", or times when you have the option to die should you (your soul) feel that you have accomplished everything that you set out during this lifetime. Perhaps your stroke was one of these times?

    Ever experience de ja vu? Eerie, isn't it.

    I think we have a certain amount of control, but life is pretty random and we have to make choices.

    I should also add that faith probably would be a part of this combination as well. I guess it's not that simple on a sober mind. :rasta:

    Nope.

    Fate is an excuse for people who don't take responsibility for their actions. Or a way for people to be humble when they don't really want to be.

    I do subscribe to Karma (a little) and luck. Although I think luck is more of a result of personality outlook on life than an everyday occurrence.
