    if

    If something bad happens, I tell myself to face it.
    Is the above sentence correct? Should I add will in front of tell?
    Or it should be changed to " Whenever something bad happens, I tell myself to face it?"
    Thanks!

    This sentence without "will" (Zero Conditional) means you behave in this way for all live. This sentence with "will" (First Conditional) relate to single future event which you are afraid for.

    Whenever something bad happens, I tell myself to face it
    It's correct, I suppose.

    I'm not a teacher.
