Don't worry about this - do best to handle it if/when it happens.

Well known that parallel construction is used. Accept it as far as
you can do nothing about it, and to the extent you -can- do something
about it, do that.

Paranoia will help you be cautious, for that it's a useful purpose,
otherwise, ditch that shirt and put on your "I'm a steamroller of
justice and persistence" shirt. Or you know, whatever :)

Certainly true.

If you begin to climb a mountain, be prepared for some serious
climbing (if you want to get to top).

The alternative is let mountain climb you, which may be not so

Long journey it is, to mountain so high you climb.

Some "small isht" training might be your cup o tea, or jump in arse
first at the deep end. Up to you.
