No, not in the slightest. It is actually the most important question out there.
Listen to the advice given, there is not much more to add.
Back when I went from pve to solo pvp - which is the most hardcore level you can do things of all forms of ship vs ship(s) combat.
I find losing (my boat) really upsetting and see to it that I don’t.
You may not get out of all situations but in time (and experience, like conquering your own fear) you know what you can engage and when to bail - also really important to learn at some point.
If you don’t spend much time doing pve for the ships you fly, you can spend more time doing pvp and losses don’t hurt as much.
What I can advise you to do is, record your fights for later study. You don’t need to show them but you can watch your own fights at a later time and maybe notice some things you didn’t before and be better prepared next time.
And if you like watching video, hob on youtube and search the “jampyzero” channel and the “Kovorix” channel.
I am not sure if you can still get it but if you have access to itunes, download the podcast “Brining Solo Back” and listen to them.
So things have changes and some fittings are inaccurate now because some slot layouts have changed in the last recent years but flying a ship didn’t change at all.
And my last advice, whatever you hear or read about killboards, just stop listening. If you start worrying too much about your killboard statistics, you will never have fun again.
Killboards can be a funny place to look for ganks or some unlucky lad with too many isk and a 300 billion loss mail.
Or it shows how (not very) good pandemic horde is at pvppppppppp when they only need more than 69 svipuls (they call that “small gang”) to shoot a Jackdaw.
And at last, if you find someone you can talk to, fly with him or her and see how much even a duo is a much different experience than flying by yourself, hoping there is not a camp on the gate you are about to jump into.
