it takes a while for the confidence to come back, and I feel as though once it does come back, you usually injure yourself again and start that cycle over
Weird, I've honestly been dealing with a hamstring strain as well. Certainly not a serious injury, and one I hardly notice in regular life, but the moment I begin trying to stride out for a one-footed explosive takeoff, it feels like it wants to rip. For as non-severe as it feels, it's sure taking a while to heal itself.
Your second paragraph has a lot of truth to it as well, ha.
