How to use "Fatalism" in context?

The philosophical idea of fatalism is that all events happen necessarily, without human choice or intervention. Fatalism is a very popular idea, and there are many ways to define it. For some, fatalism means that events are out of our control; for others, it means that we can't do anything to change what will happen. Some philosophers view fatalism as a form of nihilism, believing that there is nothing we can do to change our fate. Others see fatalism as a form of optimism, believing that this life is just one chapter in a larger story, and that death is just another step on our path.
