It is never similar when one who is raised with delicacy to the one who had it callous. Even in characters they differ much. Since you might not know how intense life is till you live it. We are in the world of heresy, yet situations differ from each occurrence, it would be much easier, life having a specific formula which all of us would follow, but unfortunately there isn't, so trial and error is what we are left to experiment. Let's just accept as it is, let's just cherish the good moment, and if anything dreadful happens, to us let us endure, believing within every grief there is relief.
However, it is reasonable to assume that humans have the power to make their own choices. Everyday people around the world wake up and make decision such as what to wear, eat, or do, none of which seem to require the power of a divine figure. Proving the existence of free will in humanity is tricky, but Saint Augustine does well to provide evidence. When God created human beings, he gave them the power of free will, as claimed by Saint Augustine in City of God. This means going through life when faced with decisions, He does interfere or enforce a predisposed plan upon an individual.

Suddenly she does anything to appease Equality. She never questions his actions or words.
― Lao Tzu Life is never complex; it is as simple as it should be nonetheless it is always us who made unnecessary changes to it for our so-called greater benefits, but generally which grow to be our greatest regrets later. Holding to waves of anger, showing impatience and running out of the compassion become a part of our life now. Simplicity is way behind us, we never dream of it. A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. ― Lao Tzu Will it be possible to make a plan for life?
It is: … the mind is conscious but conscious of nothing- I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. (Eliot 180) The meaning of the stanza emerges through the series of negations that Eliot makes: wait without hope, love, faith and thought. It is through the rejection of these things that he eventually arrives at the point of stillness in dance. When an individual is free from expectations and emotions it becomes conscious.
Nature tells Equality that individuality is man’s birthright, man’s one true victory. It is a self motivated animal, that not even the propaganda of socialism can cage. This selfishness is what eventually prompts Equality to look at his reflection in awe, create electrical lighting with his ingenuity, and, lastly, love Liberty. By recognizing and accepting these individual strengths, interests, and desires, Equality is victorious in freeing himself from collectivism. Man only comprehends rigid conformity.
Evil will tempt you all the way until you fall in its darkness. According to the existentialists, specifically Soren Kierkegaard, we are responsible for giving meaning to our own life and living sincerely. It is basically what influences us does not contribute anything on the thing we want to be. For example, traditions, culture, religion, language and nationality will not define us on what we want to become when we grew up. It is still our decision on what we want to become.
And Emma or Aisha understood well that match- making is not good for anyone’s life. As it can spoil any one’s life. To wrap, I would say, just live your life as you want to live and don't get affected by others choices and decisions because at the end you are solely responsible for your acts nobody

Nobody can force anyone for that. It’s up to your willpower. Will you want to live a life that you nowhere imagine ever? Or you want to be remembered for what you love. “Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living.” – Eckhart
