2 trades that stopped me out

Tuff day as took same trade 2x's and got stopped on both before it took off.  In review i feel i used good R:R, obeyed my stops, and when daily loss was hit i walked away.  My trouble is when i use wider stops, i seem to be wrong and take bigger losses, when i use tighter stops, i got stopped out but am right as price runs.  I can't figure it out!!

AAPL - Long on B/O

AAPL - Looked like higher low so in again

I discovered my flaw of why i struggle

I'm finding in most areas of my life, especially trading that i reside in a place of fear.  Fear of being wrong, fear of no conviction, fear of most things.  This is unhealthy and am now embarking on a journey of how to gain confidence in many areas.
