Losing H

Why is it harder to lose H+ from a negatively charged ion?

It's kind of like how the way ionization energy works. IE gets much higher after removing the first electron. The negatively charged ion is most stable being neutral, taking an H+ would just make it even more negative. Hope this helps.
