    I have made mistakes with previous boyfriends and feel like i have ruined things.

    Do you think things happen for a reason? If you are supposed to be with someone things/people always have a way of coming back someway or another no matter what happens. If they don't come back then your just not supposed to be with them. or that its complete BS?

    I think everything works out in the end, one way or another. Or we become more accepting of what happens to us, as the alternative is to become boring, self absorbed, navel gazers and that would never do.

    I half believe that everything happens for a reason - I believe that everything that happens to us makes us a better, more strong person, whether we realise it at the time or not. So it could be said that it happens for a reason.

    I'd also like to believe that if two people are 'meant to be' then someday, somehow, they will be. Whether that's true or just my wishful thinking is another matter ...

    No things don't 'happen for a reason' and there's no such thing as 'fate' contrary to whatever a few half wits might say. To suggest such a notion of karma or things happening for reasons we don't understand is pure nonsense at best.

    People make their own choices and paths in life.

    no, I don't believe in fate. Everything has a cause, but this doesn't mean everything happens due to some kind of cosmic plan.

    During English Lit we studied Blood Brothers (the play) which focuses a lot on the idea of fate and destiny etc. Our English teacher drummed into us the idea that only stupid uneducated people believe in fate, that we make and shape our own lives and when we believe otherwise we're allowing ourselves to be controlled, ie if we believe in a superstition.

    I agree with what she says, but occasionally I can't help but wonder, especially if some crazy coincidence occurs, if there is something that shapes our future, some plan. But then again, my rational side says we control our own lives.

    Things happen because people make them happen. You can't blame the universe for your mistakes, unfortunately.

    EVERYTHING happens for a reason!

    I honestly belive that, I think that the problem is that people don't learn from things that happen so never see\realise the reason behind stuff ...
