Don’t forget failure
Some people are so devastated by past failures that they choose to bury them and pretend that they never existed.
They not only avoid trying to succeed by attempting new experiences, but they also refuse to evaluate their previous mistakes in order to improve themselves for the future.
Although you may decide to put aside a bad memory, your subconscious mind never lets go of the negative emotions that you have associated with the experience.
Like invasive weeds, the feelings will continue to poison your mind against repeating any actions that might result in more pain.
