Serendipity/fate/coincidence.... Tell me a story ๐Ÿ’–

Community Member

I believe everything happens for a reason. Somethings that happen I freak out positively and negatively. Like the universe is telling me something. Hereโ€™s one,

Back in year 6/7 I had a best friend, he and I were very close. We almost dated and he hurt me. Broke my heart. I could not listen to the song perfect by Ed Sherran as I would cry thinking of him and I . Like it was intense even the tune.

Months later I meet this girl. I realise I am developing feelings for her. Her favourite celebrity was JOJO (the one with the bows) her first question when we met was, what is your orientation? At the time I said straight.

Fast-forward and now I know Iโ€™m bisexual. JOJO has just come out as part of LGBT. My first realised female celeb crush is in the perfect Ed Sherran music video.

So, in conclusion,

What is something that has happened to you that made you think,

โ€Everything happens for a reasonโ€

โ€The universe is telling me somethingโ€

โ€Thatโ€™s not at all freaky.โ€

Thanks mudcakes.

I donโ€™t have a story but I know an old friend of the family , who saw a girl on a train one day, and then caught the same train for months , this was over 6O years ago, but never saw this woman.
then about a year later saw her at a supermarket and started chatting to her. They were married for nearly 69 years till she died.
About 5 years into the marriage he was talking to her about seeing her on the train. She never caught the train.
not sure if that is serendipity.

Hi Peeps so we did heaps of shopping at a big name hardware shop and my husband I mean SS Officer says I will get a second trolley so I can CONTROL how the transaction takes place because basically they are useless at their job. I said please go to the car and I will get processed As you do. The funny thing is the checkout person missed charging me for two objects and we saved $60. To this the SS Officer said see I told you they are hopeless at their jobs. Da
