I never can see how others think this way. Something happens because it was meant to be or it wasn't meant to be. I want someone to explain to me this way of seeing things. For example, I want to buy a car in a year and in order to do that this is what I need to do: - fix my credit - save money for a downpayment - go do my research - go to the dealership and get the car Say a year goes by and I have not done anything on that list and I can't get a car, is it because "it wasn't meant to be" or is it because I failed to take personal responsibility? Some others just see it as it wasn't mean to be...how?
