Lost all confidence to ride after being in a minor accident

Lost all confidence to ride after being in a minor accident

I was practicing my dad’s motorcycle by myself for almost a week. I was getting really good at, clutch handling, small road maneuver, turning, brake and gear change, I could do it all and could ride fast while being confident in the main road too. But some days ago I was just going around in circles in a small road where there are a lot of houses and while I was turning I crashed onto a scooter which was going kind of fast. Nothing happened to the bike and I also was relatively unscathed. Just got some minor injuries in my toe and my pelvis but it’s almost healed now.

But now I can’t shake that accident off and every time I have to turn in a place which has a small road, I become absolutely nervous and start having fear of getting into another accident. I have lost absolutely all my confidence. Since then, I have practiced twice but that’s it. I ride really slow and haven’t gone to the main roads too. I’m absolutely terrified at what happens at a turn. What should I do?
