It’s only natural to assume that the same things will keep happening over and over again. And certainly, they will, if you do nothing or keep doing the same things the same way.

But apart from that, assuming the worst before even getting close usually proves wrong, because the doors are different.

How are you supposed to have satisfaction if you haven’t even gone in that direction? You are only at the mercy of external forces and circumstances. Therefore, not being destroyed is the only thing you can hope for, more or less. The reason is obvious, even if everything external is not destructive, they probably won’t wish you good as much as you do for yourself.

Taking a chance is the only reasonable option.
