Once Bitten, Twice Shy
Have you ever had such a bad experience with something or someone that you have an almost violently negative reaction to anything similar you encounter in the future? It doesn’t have to even be that much alike either; it only needs to spark that little bit of recognition to cause you to start running for the hills. The only thing you can control is yourself, so how effectively you can move on from a bad situation rests solely with you. Don’t hold yourself back, grow, move on, and find that better future for you.
