If you think everything that happens in your life is fate, I'm sure this will make you believe otherwise. Fate does have a role to play, a huge one; but it has got to play by a few rules and sooner or later you figure out what those rules are. You could wish you'd known about the rules sooner, or you could feel you were better off not knowing. It's totally up to you. And what fate plans for you, while playing by the rules.
It took me eleven years to figure out something that affected the biggest part of my life. And when I did realise, all I could think was, How could I not see it? It was right there all along. Undisputed, and proven right time and again. It was Physics after all.
