☆ inevitable 避けられない
If something is inevitable, it is certain to happen and cannot be prevented or avoided. It is unavoidable. There is a funny saying about staying young at heart (and mind!) “Growing old is inevitable but growing up is optional.”
How do you feel about the way technology is developing these days? Do you think it is inevitable that everyone in the world will be online and connected 24-7 to each other? What about the earth and global warming – is the destruction of the earth inevitable?
As you can see, “inevitable” is generally used with “heavy” topics, such as growing old, global warming, and so on. Although, you can use it in a light-hearted way too, for example, “If you drink too much, a hangover is inevitable!”
