Maybe it's a lot about finding the right therapist. I've walked out on a therapist who didn't say that precisely but did say enough rude things that I asked him if he thought he was able to work with me given his apparent countertransference towards me. He asked in return if I thought I was able to work with him given my transference towards him. I said no as politely as I could, and we ended our association.

I believe he considered himself "direct" and "no nonsense". He called them as he saw them. Unfortunately, I think he made too little effort to make sure he saw things correctly before he called them.

There are jerky therapists out there. There's no need to keep seeing one, because there are good well trained therapists out there too.

I'd have walked out too.

It's not fate telling you that therapy isn't any good for you though. It's a therapist's actions demonstrating that he isn't the right therapist for you.
