Very unclear, thread should be locked just because of that.

If that is not enough...we can just say it falls under the free will topic:

"Destiny may be seen either as a fixed sequence of events that is inevitable and unchangeable, or that individuals choose their own destiny by choosing different paths throughout their life." (Jacked from Wikipedia for a little definition)

Man, or any person walks the path he or she chooses. I think using the word "Destiny" depends on if you believe in it or not and your thought on how it works. I think many people out there don't because it might go against their religion and personal believe. For others they might feel stongly about it and have it dictate their life.

Personally, I once stongly believed in "Destiny". But it can go only so far and do so much when YOU are actually steering the vessel, which is life. For example, I might tell myself I'm gonna meet the girl of my dreams, because it's destined to be. But instead of making the effort and choices of going out and searching for my destined girl, I might sit at home going thru Crunchyroll everyday for many years to come (which I'm not, lol). I also think destiny can give you a false hope for something that won't happen because you don't take control of it or make the effort to make it happen. It can be an excuse just to be laid back and let destiny take its course. Destiny I think is a fantasy substance that many people find comfort in believing when thinking of their own outcome in life and the outcome of others.

So in short, I believe man walks his own path. Not Destiny.

Hopefully this was a little relevant or close to what you were asking for enella09.

Destiny is fate.... your most likely saying choosing our own paths can lead to either our demise or happiness. In other words like i stated... Destiny is fate.... You DECIDE!

Are our actions determined, or are we free?
