Is it "wrong" to believe in fate?

 Anonymous (@) 7 years, 9 months ago

Right and wrong don’t exist, ever.

How, common norms/facts aside, I find contemporary Western society endorses fate.

Yet I don’t believe in it. I don’t generally care what others think, however is it “normal” to scorn those who don’t endorse “metaphysical” concepts? I was born and raised in the UK, which at least in modern times is a largely secular culture.

The only fate that exists is the one you make for yourself. Everything else is circumstances.

I believe that those who believe in Destiny are wrong. I had a 2 and a half hour argument with my friend last night about how he should change his fate by not doing what he knows will be the end of him. Believing in something that is written in stone, by anyone other than GOD Himself, is wrong. If you believe in Destiny it will lead you to hunger for power. Believing in fate, and realizing what it is, you will know that you can change your fate, you can’t change your Destiny.

Destiny is only the time you were born and the ones who brought you into this world. That is the one Destiny. Everything else is what @orange said… circumstance

@desifemiliove, idk if it’s wrong but it can certainly be a limiting belief. Believing that I was just “fated” to be average held me back for years, I wasted pretty much the last 10 years of my life because of it. I don’t think believing in fate is good for you.

I don’t believe destiny or fate at all. There is no predetermined plan for any of us.

Well, let me ask you this: what is the difference between “fate” and “destiny”?

IMHO, the same thing.
