Proverbs 26:12 (NIV)
12Do you see a person wise in their own eyes There is more hope for a fool than for them.
*We have to be careful about our decisions and how we arrive at results or conclusions. What we choose in life should be based on the word and wisdom of God, and not the rationalization of the Earth or our past experiences. It's important to learn from the mistakes of the past, but do not allow the hurt/results of a previous situation/ or fear aid in your decisions or depict your capability. God provides the Holy Spirit to aid in guiding us, and He sends Godly counsel to keep us. Don't assume you know more, no matter how many times you've been through a situation. Repetition only occurs because their is a lesson to be learned that you haven't received yet. Instead of us basing things off of what we believe we know, ask God to show you in order to help you grow. Besides, has leaning to our own understanding ever really gotten us the highest results?
