"It Wasn't Meant to Be" - The Biggest Cop Out In The World


Visitors: 291

"It wasn't meant to be" is a romantic cliche meant to comfort us and make us feel better about ourselves, but instead causes us the most harm. It's the ultimate copout and contributes to people not striving to improve themselves.

We've all failed at something. The trick is not to dismiss your failures as “It wasn't meant to be" but to hold yourself responsible when you are responsible, so you avoid making the same mistakes and failing again and again. It probably won't help that a friend will probably tell you the magic words when you're upset something didn't go your way.

The world is designed to say “No" to you. Most things in life are designed to deny you what you want and the trick is to have people say yes. When you apply for a job or try to get a date with someone, most of the time people will look for a reason to say no. You have to give the other person a reason to say yes. By not preparing properly for a job interview or not giving a person respect during a date for example, you are closing the door and “it wasn't meant to be" because it ‘s your fault. This pattern seems to happen over and over again. Take it from me, it's not fate, it's you. The important thing to do is, learn from your mistakes and move on. Don't pester someone for another chance, saying you changed or they'll think your a psycho and a stalker. Just learn and move on.
