I think that sometimes destiny gets a bad rep, much like love does. Too often it get romanticized as this fluffy dream-like fairytale. The reality of love and destiny is that is is hard work. It takes grit to continue to choose it over giving up.
Really, it comes down to how much you really believe in your destiny. Most times you have to believe in your destiny more than anyone else does, because reality says that more than likely you will come across quite a few doubters.
Destiny: Gritty. Patient. Character-revealing. Amazing.
