Contronyms (same same but different)

Contronyms are single words that have two contradictory meanings (they are their own opposites). They are quite rare. Here are some examples:

1. bolt: to secure, or to flee
2. fast: quick, or stuck and made stable
3. left: remained, or departed
4. bound: heading to a destination, or restrained from movement
5. weather: to withstand, or to wear away
