** Strangely, the Soviet Union might count for a significant period of time. Namely, from 1945 to about 1985, when the helm was taken by UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev, a man who hadn't been actively involved in politics or the military during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The case had been made that the Soviet Union created its nuclear arsenal, a glacis of subjugated satellite states, and maintained a cripplingly huge military because its leaders and, actually, the whole country, were severely traumatised by the massive slaughter of the German attack.

** Strangely, UsefulNotes/{{Russia}} doesn't have much in the way of natural borders to prevent or slow an invasion, as seen when the Golden Horde rolled in from the east back in the Middle Ages, so after that trauma and centuries spent under the Mongol Yoke, its leaders' best defensive strategy was to push Russia's borders as far from Moscow as possible, which naturally led to conflict with Russia's neighbors. Then after the communist revolution, the Nazi invasion during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII was so horrific that the now Soviet Union might count for a significant period of time. Namely, from 1945 to about 1985, when the helm was taken by UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev, a man who hadn't been actively involved in politics or the military during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The case had been made that the Soviet Union created its nuclear arsenal, built up a glacis of subjugated satellite states, a devastating nuclear arsenal, and maintained a cripplingly huge military because its leaders and, actually, so large that it contributed to the whole country, were severely traumatised by the massive slaughter of the German attack. USSR's collapse, all so it wouldn't have to go through something like that again.

** This is also what happens with a number of bullied students that go on school shootings, which normally target their tormentors first in a desperate effort to make the bullying stop. On the other end of the spectrum they may go the nonviolent route and instead [[DrivenToSuicide take their own lives to keep it from continuing.]]

* The central conflict of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is essentially this, with every major character having some aspect of this as their motivation. Pretty much all of the characters' {{Angst}} is caused by characters being unable to connect with other people for fear of being hurt. Shinji and Asuka being in love with but too frightened of each other to try and have a relationship leads to TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, that Shinji unleashes because he ''believes'' that no one loves him and everybody would hurt him. [[BiggerBad SEELE's]] end goal is essentially an attempt at this taken to its LogicalExtreme.

** It's also the reason why Imperium hates aliens so much: during the Age of Strife, aliens, who were allies of us, turned on humanity, caused great destruction, enslaved humanity, etc. The Emperor decided that all aliens should be destroyed to make humanity's future safe, and frighteningly, his extremist views aren't very wrong.

* At the beginning of ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'', Kaladin is terrified that if he lets anyone know about his new Surgebinding powers, the lighteyes will take them away from him somehow. He knows perfectly well that that's impossible, but it doesn't really help.



* ''Literature/WordsOfRadiance'' (second book of ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''): Kaladin is paralyzingly afraid that if he lets any lighteyes know about his new Surgebinding powers, they will somehow take them away. [[spoiler:This leads to him breaking his vows [[{{Irony}} and losing his powers]]. He recovers them after he realizes what he did wrong and swears a new Ideal]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', this trope is the origin of [[FutureBadass Dark Danny]]. After losing his parents, sister, best friend, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and teacher]], Danny (with former nemesis and new guardian Vlad's help) sought to remove his human half to get rid of the pain and grief that plagued him. Unfortunately, the process turned his ghost half into a remorseless sociopath, who killed his human half, tore out Vlad's ghost side and absorbed it, and went on a ten-year-long rampage.

* Scarlett O'Hara in ''Film/GoneWithTheWind'': "As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!"
* This has been used as Film/{{Spartacus}}' motivation in several fictionalisations.
* ''Film/{{Hitch}}'': Part of Hitch's backstory - in his younger days he loved and was very devoted to a woman who broke his heart by cheating on him with a cooler guy, with the reason that he was too average. In explaining it, he blatantly says he set out to ensure the same thing never happens to anyone else or himself - he reinvents himself to become the very pinnacle of charm, and then becomes the "Date Doctor" to give average guys real romantic chances that would otherwise never come their way.
* The Pigeon Lady in ''Film/HomeAlone2'' tells Kevin that she was hurt by a man who didn't love her back, so never let herself the possibility of having her heart broken again. That's why she was alone, [[spoiler: that, and the pigeon poop.]]
* Magneto from the ''Film/XMen'' films, is both a Holocaust Survivor and mutant "lab rat", which pushes him towards DoUntoOthersBeforeTheyDoUntoUs regarding mutant suppression by the humans.

* The main character of ''TheKingkillerChronicle'' mentions this as one of several motivations for attending WizardingSchool. (How truthful he was being is currently unknown--especially since the series isn't finished yet.)
