Let's Talk About: Destiny- Does it exist?

Let's Talk About: Destiny- Does it really exist?
Agree? Disagree? Read my post below, and comment your opinions. 

First of all, I’m going to consult my BFFL Google on a handy lil definition:

 

 

Destiny: the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future or the hidden power believed to control future events; fate. Now, what’s fate?

 

Fate: The development of events outside a person’s control, regarded as predetermined bu a supernatural power.

 

A lot of people believe in destiny. How we were born to who we are, born where we were, the fact that we were born as a human and not a other creature is destiny. If all of these things are outside the realm of our control, are they destiny? Is it all meant to happen for a reason?

 

Destiny is something we didn’t ask for, never desired but it is still happened. Eg. Did you desire to be born where you did? I believe not. Did you desire to be called what you’re called? Nope. Did you desire to pass that one person on your commute to work today? Probably not, and they probably didn’t desire to pass you either. This wasn’t in your control, yet it happened to you, so does that mean it’s fate? Maybe even destiny?

 

Or is destiny a great concept we constructed for ourselves as comfort when we don’t have a suitable explanation for something happening?

 

Do we build our life towards free will or every one of us has a mission in this life ruled by destiny? No choice in the matter?
