Persistent coincidences plague me. While I remain skeptical to avoid disappointment, at times I can't help but treat them as hints from fate or destiny. As circumstances present themselves with particular people again and again, how can they be dismissed as meaningless? Forces beyond the control of both parties must be at play here and I think it is very important to acknowledge them as 'happening for a reason'. I don't know what that reason is yet, but at least I'm one step closer to figuring it out.
