The String of Fate

The String of Fate

The Red String of Fate is an interesting lore that derived from East Asia. Long story short the Chinese and Japanese believed that an invisible string bound two people together. Possibly destined lovers, regardless of place, time, or circumstances, also it may be that they are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way.

I’ve often wondered what I am destined for, will be it a lifetime of depression? Is there an invisible string that ties me to something that will lift me above all of this and wake me up for the first time?  I look back at when I was younger and cannot recall any path I could have taken that would have led me to a place of happiness.  It felt like fate, as if the gods above pointed a finger a me and said ” you there, you will walk under a sky of cloud and rain with little sunshine to provide comfort”.

As many other people I too have had highs and lows growing up but I do not know if they shaped me or was it going to be this way regardless.  I now live a pretty darn good life, I have a solid job that has allowed me to provide for me and my family.  I watch my children and wonder what are the odds they are destined as me.  I feel for them and their mother, that they were dealt a father and husband who should be more.

The string of fate, it continues to unravel yet I hold on by this string.
