A paradox is when two opposites are true usually at the same time. A paradox itself models inconsistency, and ultimately contradiction. The way that I view Destiny is completely paradoxical. I believe that we possess the power within ourselves to create our Destiny, but simultaneously, I also believe some things are already divinely organized and predetermined for us. Reflectively, if some things are already predetermined, it seems that our choices are not truly our own and we lack power over our own Destinies.

If you've opened this I imagine it's because you've been hurt, and it has literally knocked the breath out of your body. Maybe the pain has even went so far to bring you to your knees pleading with God to never let anything like that happen again. Perhaps you've even started slacking in classes, and have been distracted from being the best you you know you should be. You want to put everything off for another day when you actually feel like it. I've been there. It's no fun picking up shattered pieces of your heart or your pride. But guess what? The same hand that has written even the greatest moments of your life has also written this for you. You just have to go through it. Not because you deserve it or the world is punishing you, but because it's the very making of who you're supposed to be.
Welcome to my views from this horizon!
