What is fatal?

Getting in a car crash can be fatal.

Getting hit by a bullet could certainly do it.

What isn’t fatal is giving a presentation to the class.

Getting rejected when asking someone to dance.

Or losing a job.

We confuse what are real threats and what are perceived as threats.

Sure, the path ahead might be inconvenient or difficult. But you don’t know for sure what’s up ahead–it might actually be for your own good.
