"Everything happens for a reason" is the quintessence of bullshit.

You are in control of your destiny. Your actions have consequences, and the choices you make define the path you take.

So choose wisely; don't leave anything to fate. Fate is someone else making choices for you.

@oedmarap "Everything happens for a reason" is not fatalistic, it's a chance to dig deeper, to discover the truth behind what might be a facade of everyday life. It may even be considered the heart of scientific enquiry.

@mattrose Yes indeed, that was much more eloquently said. 👏
