Fate is an interesting concept.
The way you look at fate can also determine how you look at life.
Personally, I feel fate is real as the things you go through in life were meant to happen.
The choices you make and have in life lead you to a certain path, but no matter which one you choose has an ending that was meant to happen.
Two people can go through the same situation, but each can have a different outcome because that is how it was meant to be.
That, to me, is fate. Your life turns out the way it did because the choice you made lead you to a specific ending.
What is fate to you?
