I always wonder how life balances what is a chance occurrence vs something that is unavoidable. Is life merely a series of predetermined or random coincidences that lead us to where we belong? What ultimately decides whether meeting someone or achieving something is by chance or by fate?
It is an interesting idea that much of our identity is based on our (past, present, future) interactions, relationships, experiences with others. This leads me to ponder the mechanics of a human connection – on what factors make us start the engine, keep the pedal running, or push the breaks on a relationship. Are we ever the sole controllers of forming a human connection, or is there a higher power that governs this – and ultimately who we are as human beings.
