It's like getting back with a girlfriend only to get heartbreak in the end (god forbid). They don't want the same sadness to happen again, but once they are back in, they feel happy again, only to be dissapointed in the end. For example, Kirk felt bad about losing the Enterprise-A in 2293, and swore never to set foot on a starship again. Yet, later that year he was talked into being a guest of honour on the Enterprise-B, and again, felt that same sadness on the bridge. Then, he felt useful by involving himself in the deflector control room, and I'm guessing he didn't run back up to the bridge because it would bring back that same sadness that he wasn't the one in charge and that it wasn't the place for him.

*But at least he got to sit in the captain's chair...for a few seconds anyway.
