So I recently had an experience that was a bad one, hence the subject. Anyway, I have told many people that this one bad experience has brought me to the conclusion that I should give up that certain something. But when I say I am giving that up people tell me that I am making a mistake and should not give up after just one bad experience. My question is why do people tell me that? The way I see things I am doing the right thing. I am taking measures to prevent pain and unhappiness on my part. Yet I am the one making the mistake. That just does not make sense to me. Why is it that people tell me this? Keep in mind this is a general question. The question is you try something and it is bad. Therefore to not experience the bad again you are giving up on ever trying that experience again. This means I am not going to tell you guys what I gave up or the reasons I chose to give it up.
