Or rather the realization that it won't matter, I can only exist in one timeline and even instances of me wondering about what I could have done differently (but haven't done differently) are just part of this timeline.

It also interferes with my lack of belief in free will =p

well since all things are possible with God then it's got to work out somehow.

could it be we have both? sometimes we can choose our destiny sometimes our destiny is fixed for us?

If the Multiverse is true, you don't really exist only in one timeline, though.
In fact, isn't there the infinitely small chance of a universe in which we are all immortals in it?

"I" (the sum of all my decisions up to this point and probably beyond and my awareness of them) do, but a given entity called Rodent is necessarily going to exist in multiple timelines. At least in a sizable number of timelines in which I decided to stick with that name but where that name is the only constant variable.
Sometimes I wake up in the morning and I go...
