If all one learns is fear from a past experience, then one really hasn't learned the lesson at all.

While it's true that none of us wishes to repeat a painful experience, experience often provides the tools to prevent a repeat. However, if fear is the only lesson, then one potentially remains doomed for a repeat.

Also, it seems that over-generalizations often occurs with a painful experience. For example if a woman is treated badly by one man, she may generalize her feelings to all men. Likewise, a man may do the same.
