If it’s meant to be…

Posted on March 25, 2009 by


A friend of mine went through what was a really rough break up for her and it seemed that the thing that gave her the most comfort was the phrase “If it’s meant to be it’ll happen.”

I’m really bad at being comforting in these kinds of situations, and since that made her feel better I would go along with it. But I can’t help but scoff at how ridiculous that seems. That phrase sounds like an excuse to not be proactive. It sounds like an excuse to not work for what you want. What about couples that have been married for years and years and get divorced. It happened, so was it meant to be? That’s not fair, I don’t think that should be “meant” for anyone.
