I believe in fate, in destiny. I believe that some things had to happen for a determined result to occur. No matter what happens, no matter how hard you resist, it will always find a way to meet that certain end.
This is one instance I could think of where the end would justify the means. The ‘end’ is just the beginning of the journey when you put fate in play. You’ll get there eventually, but how smooth or rough the ‘getting there’ is, it’s what gives value to that end. Depending on your journey, the end could be good or bad for you.
Additionally, I don’t think of only one end but many. Like chapters of a novel, the ‘end’ I’m speaking of are important points/events in life that mark the end of a life’s chapter and the beginning of a new one. Each chapter has a story that leads to the next. Each one is a journey in the vast journey of life. When we take our first step, when we reach puberty, when we fall in love, when we move out, when we suffer a loss, etc.
Finally, these ends happen the way they will because of the choices that we’ve done leading up to that end. That’s why each end can be good or bad for you, depending on how you’ve made your choices. You can prolong a certain end or shorten it, but it will happen.
So to answer today’s Daily Prompt in a very roundabout and almost-off-topic kind of way, my answer would be YES.
The LORD has made everything for its own purpose, Even the wicked for the day of evil. – Proverbs 16:4
