On fate or serendipity or random ways of life
"There are people and places and events that lead you to your final relationship, people and places and events you'd prefer to forget or at least gloss over. In the end, you can slap a pretty label on it - like serendipity or fate. Or you can believe that it's just a random way life unfolds." (Emily Giffin - Love The One You're With)
I'd never read any Emily Giffin's book before. This is my first time reading one of her pieces. And even though page 10 is the furthest I reach at this point, it's caught me. Emily Giffin's writing feels so real and anyone can relate to her light-deep words. This book is about question of 'what if...?' of our past relationships. Would it be different if we did things differently? Would it be better or worse, if we took the other turn? Would we last if we didn't go? And the most important question, would we be happier if we said 'yes'? But again, that's how we'll label our relationships one day. Fate, serendipity, random ways of life. Or stupidity? Careless slip?
