When Orpheus went to the Underworld to bring his wife back to life, Hades told him not to look back. Orpheus and his wife had almost reached the real world when Orpheus looked back. Hades took the wife back to death. After that Orpheus couldn't face life and was killed.
The theme of this story is don't look back. If you do look back at your life, you'll be destroyed.
