We get back up.
We carry on.
Your fate is what is destined for you specifically.
You are born into this world in the current form you are in, and you have no say in how you are born.
Your life has been written for you.
It seems the practical choice is to love your fate and flow with it. The other choice, like the stoics talked about, is to try to fight your fate – which is like a dog putting it’s hind legs in the dirt trying not to be carried by the cart which is pulling it.
It’s better to let go and flow with life than to resist and be painfully pulled.
Friedrich Nietzsche said:
“My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it, but love it.”
Your life has been designed for you to live, and for you to love.
It’s better to embrace and love your fate than to resist and be dragged.
